I’d Vote For Him

What Paul Waldman wants the Dem candidates to say to Timmeh:

You know what, Tim, I’m not going to answer that question. This is serious business. And you, sir, are a disgrace. You have in front of you a group of accomplished, talented leaders, one of whom will in all likelihood be the next president of the United States. You can ask them whatever you want. And you choose to engage in this ridiculous gotcha game, thinking up inane questions you hope will trick us into saying something controversial or stupid. Your fondest hope is that the answer to your question will destroy someone’s campaign. You’re not a journalist, you’re the worst kind of hack, someone whose efforts not only don’t contribute to a better informed electorate, they make everyone dumber. So no, I’m not going to stand here and try to come up with the most politically safe Bible verse to cite. Is that the best you can do?

The rest of the post is all about what a smug, self-important phony Russert is, and how the influence of Timmeh and other talking-head morons like him is making our electoral process a joke. Of course, we already knew that, but it’s still a pleasure to read someone state it so clearly.
