It actually kind of makes me giddy, in a morbid sort of way. John Dickerson at Slate says we should leave Obama alone on the Blago scandal. For now. He concedes that Obama’s first response was ‘flaccid’ and that reporters should keep asking questions.
But that “it would be a mistake to assume Obama is acting in bad faith.” I mean, really, “give the new guy a break.”
Obama aside. Blago aside. Any connection–or no connection–aside, the bigger picture, the whole piece struck me as such an ironic, blatant–almost naive?–example of media bias I just had to chuckle (hence, the strange giddiness).
If this had been Bush, President-Elect in 2000, in some kind of similar-looking scandal, (pre any of the issues we know of now) Slate and everyone else would be saying, Feed him to the dogs! Barrage him with questions! Demand reasonable answers! Now!
