Ooooh, I've seen the light. Let's stop being so mean to each other, OK? Mark Halprin of Time, one of the president's cheerleaders, says "Let's Stop the Gaffe Patrol, after President Obama's howler that "the private sector is doing fine."
How can the press ever criticize politicians for trivializing our politics when we focus on statements that have little to do with the candidates actual views or their proposals for the future? But also: shame on both campaigns for saying, in effect, the other guy’s gaffe matters but our guy just had some bad phrasing which should be ignored.
What a wonderful way to start the week. People call for a cease-fire when their side is losing.
