Sensationalizing normalcy

John McCain is not ready to commit to Palin 2012. It would really be news if he were ready to commit to her four years in advance. That would suggest (political) marriage, and it would truly be unusual.

The fact that CNN fluffs this story as if it should be controversial more about the media's appetite for controversy than it says about McCain or Palin. But now they can go to Palin for comment and print yet another photo of her, something they really like to do.
