    Jay Carney, recent White House spokesman, made his CNN debut last night in fine fashion on Anderson Cooper's show. His first gig: 1-on-1 with McCain in the wake of Obama's speech about ISIS.

    Made for nice TV. Anderson tried to moderate best he could, and Jay tried to be rigid, and was a few times, I suppose, but McCain hammered away.

    And before the certain few posters go ballistic and say this is about politics, it ain't, so save your breath and stroke your beads.

    (I don't watch CNN anymore but was surfing and saw Carney and wanted to see what was what, come to find out CNN hired him.)

    I'm not sure about politics, but it sure ain't journalism.

    McCain talked about "facts" -- that's journalism, bubba!

    It is, of course, but as usual for you and all your ilk, you don't care and gleefully go ahead and violate site rules.

    As far as Carney and McCain, what kind of fucking morons would pay them 10 cents for their thoughts on anything.

    Somebody tell Carney he's late for fourth period social studies. Somebody tell McCain he just crashed another plane.
