What’s your favorite Stupid Campaign Season Distraction?

There is nothing that excites the media more than the smell of blood, so much so they will create imaginary fights. Here’s a few Stupid Campaign Season Distractions I’ve noticed in the last day or two:

  • Supposedly former Clinton supporters who are voting for McCain (even when just a little research will show that many of them were never actually Clinton supporters).
  • Whether or not Hillary Clinton supported Obama “enough” in her speech last night (they desperately miss being able to cover the Obama v. Clinton primary “fight”)
  • Whether the Democrats will take off the gloves and start attacking Republicans (after all, that’s the only way they will give the Dems any attention).
  • Whether or not a particular person is “patriotic enough” (e.g., flag pins, Michelle Obama, etc.)

What’s your favorite Stupid Campaign Season Distraction? Post it in the comments.

    NPR, who take pride in not being like the others, preempting Senator Harkin and Congressman Leach to focus on an Obama biographer discussing Obama’s childhood. No wonder the pundits believe the Democrats aren’t constructing their case, they aren’t watching.
