Elisabethan manners

Perhaps the most valuable print real estate in the world, and the New York Times fritters it away on the trivialities that Elisabeth Bumiller sees in the sexual politics of how John McCain hugs Sarah Palin (as if we can't see that for ourselves). Even p. A21 of tomorrow's paper, where this is promised to run in the dead tree edition, would be better used by blank gray emptiness.

Remember, an editorial committee permitted this. It's not as though Bumiller herself gets to allocate pages.
