I have a Sunday AM ritual: turn on one of the news shows and see how long I can last without becoming desperately ill. Usually no more than five minutes.
This morning, I tuned in MTP and there was "Dancin' Dave" introducing a segment on (surpise!) Libya:
Dave, to Panel: "Can this issue get even more politicized?"Exit Upper West, to the bathroom, gagging.
(Me, thinking -- Holy crap, Dave, exactly which party is desperately politicizing this to death?)
Tom Friedman (making sense for one of the rare times in his life): "What we saw in Benghazi was amazing -- crowds of people with pictures of the Ambassador actually protesting the murders and rounding up the suspects!"
Dancin' Dave: "But Obama said that Al Qaeda is dead? How can this happen if that's the case?"
(Me, thinking is that from Rush or Fox?)
Dee Dee Myers: "Obama has been great on terror! Killed OBL, etc."
Dancin' Dave: "Well, here's an article by Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard that says one of the suspects of the attack was sitting around in a cafe, sipping a drink. What about that, huh, huh, huh?"
