Tom Brokaw cheers on George W. Bush, Drunk.

Brokaw just reminisced about how George W. Bush, at 40, was adrift in his life, at odds with his father, had just given up drink, and is now on the verge of being reelected president.

Geez, Tom. . . Ya still felt the need to bring it up, eh? Why not just mention the AWOL story?

That's what I think of when I think of President Bush: personal success story. See, he's like the Ray Charles of politics. The moment he got off the smack, he got to be president! Really, he's an inspiration to us all.

Could Brokaw ever think of saying something that *doesn't* focus on the flaws of President Bush, past, present, or imagined? Maybe, perhaps, say something, you know, nice?

I'm not sure if it was Brokaw or Jennings, but last night one of them interviewed McCain. McCain was a good party guy and said all the right things to support Bush. Then after he was gone, the weasel says "I don't know if I should mention this, but McCain was really abused (or savaged) by the Bush campaign in 2000". That's just a paraphrase, but it was pretty close to that.

Two points here: 1. Why the hell would he bring that up? Don't they want to at least pretend that they're not partisan anymore? and 2. McCain was a lousy candidate in 2000. It had nothing to do with the stories about him having a kid out of wedlock. Hell, that's hardly news with an ex-military man. His main defect as a candidate was that he pissed off the veterans (including me) when he sold the MIA/POW issue down the river. As Kerry just proved, you don't want angry vets talking about you during your campaign.
