  •  He always seems on the verge of losing it (6+ / 0-)

    I think that if the media really presses him hard, he will lose it. I felt that when Stephanopoulos interviewed him today.  Also, he will be so easy to trip up because he is not as quick on his feet anymore.

      for I seriously doubt that anyone in the media will press him hard; and if someone does, his/her "colleagues" will likely vilify that person as an example of the worst excesses of liberal bias within their ranks and excuse McCain's reaction as justifiable.

      Ever notice how conservatives don't conserve anything?

      •  I think we'll just have to shame them into it (0+ / 0-)

        We already had a tremendous effect after that debate debacle the other night. I doubt if George Stephanopoulos would have asked any of the questions he did today had we not reacted the way we did. In the general election, he will be pressed.
