    but in addition to being somewhat in the tank, the press is also like the soccer game for 5 year olds -- throw out another ball and they forget about the first one and run after the new one.  Rosengate is the first ball.

    But there have been "firestorms" in our favor -- the Rush affair and any number of Romney gaffes.

    The GOP: "You can always go to the Emergency Room."

      Rush was genuinely out of line in a big way.  And one of Romney's closest advisors describing the campaign as an Etch a Sketch that they planned to shake once the general election began was a HUGE gaffe.  Even if we're all cynical as hell already, it's still a big deal when a top advisor in the campaign tells the public that the candidate is bullshitting for votes.  How does that compare to Rosen's out of context and true remark being blown up as a Game Changer when she's not even a part of the campaign?  

      It's a big difference between reporting news and making it.  For Mitt's sake, they created a gaffe and flogged it for all it was worth.  That's a big deal in my book because elections have been won and lost on that kind of dealing.  

      When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.
