  • A Wooden Nickel for the Media

    So, I guess there’s something going on about whether or not Clinton’s campaign left a tip after dining at a restaurant in Iowa? Whatever. Who the fuck cares? I guess the news media.

    Buried at the end of technology article, about Clinton’s new instant-media-response web site, is this great little gem:

    “You people are really nuts,” [the waitress] told a reporter during a phone interview. “There’s kids dying in the war, the price of oil right now — there’s better things in this world to be thinking about than who served Hillary Clinton at Maid-Rite and who got a tip and who didn’t get a tip.”

    Amen, sister.

    • You know, all of these politicians have important positions on important issues and have made policy recommendations to deal with them. I’d love some reporting on what those are, and some analysis about how good their solutions are. But all I hear about is Hillary’s cackle and is Obama black enough? Sheesh.
