The Merkel incident was way too obvious (I mean even MSM picked up on it). Why bother analyzing it at all? Frat boy gone wild, period.

When I first saw the story break, I thought this was going to go totally in favor of Bush, but then the truth came out that they were AMERICANS. I saw the pendulum swing away from the neocons, as it demolishes the whole "fight them over there" theory. But then the pendulum swung back to the middle when the pictures showed that none of them were white. After all, if they're all brown-skinned, they're still "outsiders" to neocons. It seems like the media doesn't know what to make of this or how to spin it in favor of Bush. If they hype it up too much, people might question Iraq's legitimacy, but if they don't pump it enough, then people won't know of the administration's anti-terror actions.

To those of us in the 'reality-based community,' this is big, shocking news: "Man has balls to tell GWB the truth to his face". To Bush supporters and the media, which no one can argue is anything but compliant, this was some 'comedian' at a dinner event who played around with some satire, got Scalia to laugh heartily, and didn't get many laughs. It doesn't make for an exciting clip for the news- Colbert says something biting and insightful, and everyone sits around thinking "am I going to lose my job tomorrow?" Think of how the story they ran with plays out- Bush monkeys around with his 'twin' and everyone had a joyous ol' time. No explaining necessary, no backstory required. As between slapstick and sophisticated humor, which are they going to choose to cover?
