"Go Set a Botchman" Edition.
@chucktodd @realDonaldTrump "would you hire unattractive people" is now journalism. Trump however was fantastic.— Virginia Coverdale (@gotapoint) August 17, 2015
That about sums it up.
For awhile, the Beltway hoped that "saying crazy things" would trip Trump up because the Beltway lives in their own bouncy house made of hazy memories of Tim Russert farts where Imaginary Republicans are outraged by the crazy, foolish things that come pouring out of the mouths of their candidates and media stars, rather than out here in the real world where Republicans are a mob of squalling idiots who are encouraged and delighted by what Trump says.
So now that snickering and "looking with alarm" has failed, Beltway is hanging its hopes on "journalism" as their last, best chance to take down the great white who is picnicking on their beaches and ruining their summer.
Too bad that these days the Beltway's collective journalistic expertise amounts to going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods.

So good luck with that.
