What's Wrong With the MSM

Glennzilla captures the situation thusly:

And [Megan McArdle] wants it that way, as she argues that the media should tell her more about Obama's bowling score than about these dreary, boring stories about DOJ memos. That's why the Government can and does continue to do what it does -- because our elite establishment opinion-makers aren't just profoundly ignorant, but happy about it, grateful for it even.

Yes indeedy. And they will suck up to McCain because he invites them over for BBQ and because not one of them expects to live in the militarized state he promises to make. They know they won't have to go to Iraq to stand up for John's honor. It's the other folks who will get to pay for the media's good time and for McCain's mis-guided sense of honor.

You know, someday, some of them will find themselves or someone they care about suffering under the policies they helped bring about. But not soon enough. And for now, they'll continue to be flattered and seduced by the thrill of being part of thie big guy scene.

They want so much to be part of the kool kids that they just don't give a damn about what happens to the rest of the country. After all, they got to have some face time with John.

Bring back the draft. Rich first and all infantry. No deferments, no signing for other services. Wonder how fast they'll go 60s.
