quote of the day

kevin drum, at his new digs over at mojo:

if walter cronkite could manage to talk semi-intelligently for hours on end during an apollo countdown in which, literally, absolutely nothing was happening, why can't today's talking heads find something semi-intelligent to say while they cover political conventions for hours on end? it is a mystery.

Thought you knew that.

Yes, but (Olbermann aside) when do they EVER say anything that is semi-intelligent?
