A thought just occurred to me...

Wolf Blitzer spent about seven minutes of congressionally licensed airtime on Sunday morning chuckling heartily over Sarah Palin's guest appearance on Saturday Night Live. His panel of Washington DC pundits all made similar jovial noises. Nowhere in all this hail-fellow-well-met rubbish did ANYONE observe that Governor Palin has the time to appearance on a TV sketch comedy and yet she has never called a simple press conference since being nominated for Vice President at the Saint Paul GOP convention.
She will do "SNL" but ghod forbid she should go on "Meet the Press".
The fact that Blitzer and his useless collection of windbags couldn't recall this remarkable factoid is a damning indictment of the state of television journalism today...and we get those damning indictments now almost every time we switch on the TV.
