McCNN just not interested?

Somehow, Sarah Palin has the top spot at McCNN Politics for the third day in a row. How is that even possible for a 24-hour cable news network?

Since Obama has issued some stiff rejoinders to the RNC's routine of a hundred bad cops followed by one guy trying to be a good cop, there is a story large enough to bump her. Hell, a Democrat standing up for himself is practically unprecedented. To do so with good copy? Stop the presses:

“Suddenly [McCain’s] the change agent!” Obama laughed. “He says, “I’m going to tell those lobbyists that their days of running Washington are over.” Who’s he going to tell? Is he going to tell his campaign chairman who’s one of the biggest corporate lobbyists in Washington? Is he going to tell his campaign manager who was one of the biggest corporate lobbyists in Washington? Is he going to tell all the folks who are running his campaign who are the biggest corporate lobbyists in Washington?”

“Who is it that he’s going to tell that change is coming?” he added, “I mean come on, they must think you’re stupid!”


“I have to say, when John McCain says in his [acceptance] speech that he wants to reduce the rancor in Washington and I’m thinking, did you pay attention to the last two days of your convention?” Obama chuckled, “were you not watching? Did they not get the memo?”

“When it starts getting personal, when you start just focusing exclusively on trying to tear the other person down instead of what you are going to do on behalf of the American people to deal with this economy, then that’s not serving Democrats, that’s not serving Republicans, that’s not serving anybody.”

I have to say that I'm not impressed with Obama's press operation this week. They should be flinging press releases and photo ops against the Palin honeymoon as fast as their little fingers can type.

But maybe McCNN is just not interested.
