In response to commenter demand, an open thread for your Friday. First topic -- what happens when the media starts eating itself, metaphorically?
At the beginning of the Lewinsky scandal, it took three days for the media to start bashing itself. Things may be truly getting awful for Obama when you see Matt Bai, formerly of Newsweek and The New York Times Magazine, whacking "TV pundits" for daring to question Obama's "interview" with comedian Zack Galifianakis for the Will Ferrell website Funny or Die:
Love the irony of TV pundits debating if @funnyordie debases the presidency. Want to know what debases politics? TiVo yourselves.
