  •  Correct. Here's the entry from the unskewed, (15+ / 0-)

    authoritative source on such matters, the Balloon-Juice Lexicon... :)

    “This is excellent news for…”- A phrase born during the 2008 Presidential election, used by McCain supporters and media hacks such as Mark Halperin (that may be redundant), where every piece of news was considered to be good news for John McCain. The best example of this sort of counter-intuitive nonsense was Halperin, to the disbelief of the rest of the ABC Sunday morning panel, insisting that the fact that McCain could not count the number of houses he owned was actually good news for John McCain and a horrible gaffe for Obama. And no, this is not a joke- he actually said that.

    Anxiously awaiting TrueTheVote's report on all the buses full of illegal voters who managed to elect Obama on Tuesday.

    •  While McCain was no longer the candidate, (9+ / 0-)

      Halperin is still a hack.  Although easier to ignore this time around.
