Don’t we all. I’m giving you this in lieu of the vid of her O’Reilly appearance, which was a surprise snoozer. Bill wanted to know if she was as tough today in her interview with McCain as she was on Biden; judge for yourself. Like I said in this weekend’s post, her questions seem framed not to elicit an informative response so much as an irritated reaction. It’s good television — anything that breaks up the usual catatonic recitation of talking points is welcome — but for all the rhetoric here about the importance of getting answers before the votes are cast, she didn’t get much out of either Biden or McCain.
That said, conservative regard for the media is now so low that evenhandedness even in the context of squirm journalism is enough to make her a momentary righty folk hero.
Update: Here’s the O’Reilly clip.
