Over at the Corner, Kathryn Jean Lopez is uncomfortable talking about the possible implications of this news. Obviously, I also wish Johnson the best, and I’m sure network news reporters do as well, but I think it’s perfectly legitimate for journalists to talk about the possible ramifications of this development–that’s just providing context to the story for viewers and readers. Now, were a conservative blogger to write, “hopefully this guy croaks so we can take back the Senate,” that would be a different story. But explaining the potential significance of this news story is perfectly appropriate.
