Noel Sheppard thinks the media’s embargoed the story, but I’m more inclined to blame the holiday weekend and the fact that it was broken on a blog (even one as big as dKos). This is a golden opportunity for them to attack the Democrats from the left, which they’ll then use later as proof of how “fair” they are. “See? We criticize both parties … for not being socialist enough.”

On the other hand, Mother Sheehan’s absolute moral authority has been looking less absolute with each passing day, so maybe they’ve already decided to leave well enough alone already.

Exit question: This probably means she’s running, though, eh?
