WHAT THE PRESS MEANS BY BALANCE:

Millions of seniors find Medicare savings in new drug program, but some frustrated (Associated Press, January 1, 2007)

At the point where a story is evenly balanced between the millions who are benefiting and the few who can't figure it out and won't take advantage of the extensive help available, it's not a news story anymore.

Of course, the GOP deserves just as much opprobrium for running away from the most successful government entitlement ever and ru8nning on the war in Iraq instead.

Both press and the Right are blinded to reality by ideology.

You left out the real key: the GOP opposition to a minimum wage increase.

Does it bother you that McCain, who voted against and lobbied against the Medicare bill containing the benefit, won't (and won't be able to) run on it either?

Raoul:

It's stupid, but minor.

rds:

Yes, he will.
