Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrip, Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrip, Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrip


Today's WaPo has a big story on Obama's bundlers.

There is nothing in it with even a whiff of impropriety.

Unless you are the candidate who said initially you would accept public financing for the general election but then took the public financing option off the board when you started raising a ton of money.

Noted: We would love to know who was more helpful to Mosk and MacGillis on this story - Team Clinton or Team McCain.

Is Obama About To Get Wet?


Boy, if we were on Team Obama, we wouldn't let our water walking boss do this.

And yeah, we understand Obama's (defensive) talking points and the amount of money they can raise (and already have raised).

But...

Dare we say that Obama is in danger of being called a liar? A liar that lies for money?!??!!

We just might.

And while the general public might not truly appreciate the ins and outs of all this, the press does (or will). And we know for a fact that one media darling is going to use this to club the other media darling over the head for the next 7 months.

And sooner or later you might hear a little "Splash".
