The news meme yesterday all over cable news was that Barack Obama was presumptuous, and acting too much like he'd already become President. Trouble was, this all hinged on a hearsay quote, taken out of context.
Rachel Maddow (who is quickly becoming a daily feature here on the blog) does an exceptional job shooting this meme down. I'm most impressed at her refusal to let Pat Buchanan prattle on, as though the quote had not been discredited. I'm also tickled by her grumpy appearance while she waits for her turn. One of these days, Rachel is going to blow her top when the spin and silliness gets to be too much. I can't wait.
