Weird and senseless

So. This plane all liveried up as a McCain * Palin plane (where's the American flag!) is a leased charter to carry reporters. The reporter pay the campaign for their seats on it.

The story, though, is the shiny new plane, with generous and gratuitous mention of McCain's branding for the plane he and Sarah will actually fly on. (Note to Obama campaign: Hint, hint.)

The establishment loves to cover itself and its new toys.

Update (9/6): I misinterpreted the CNN story I linked to. It was only Thursday that reporters had this plane to themselves. It apparently will be Sarah Palin's new plane for the duration of the campaign. She didn't get it on eBay, by the way. (h/t BarbinMD on Kos)
