The SC Primary: Obama Blowout, Media Still Blows

Photo credit: USA Today

Barack Obama kicked ass and took names tonight in South Carolina. The two-headed beast that has become the Hill/Bill campaign, sensing their defeat, headed for the hills, hightailing it to Tennessee before results were even returned.

Predictably, the cable news channels, who are really beginning to remind me of the greyhounds that chase the mechanical rabbit, are now back to dissing Hillary and trumpeting Obama's chances. They are also fond of pointing out quite frequently how terrible it is that the Clinton campaign has introduced race into the campaign. That's interesting. If you numbskulls would quit talking about it, wouldn't it be like a tree falling in the forest without a reporter around to tell us about it. Something like that. Bear with me, fellow tellyphiles. I'm ailing and Nyquil was recently administered.

Anyway, don't miss the speeches tonight. Obama is to speak any minute now at 9pm est, Edwards and Hillary to follow.
