The Media Has Its Priorities Straight !

You want to write about a scandal? Great, getting back to basics when business is bad is always smart. Here's a list to get you started:

Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich - selling a Senate seat
Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel - tax cheat
Democratic Congressman William Jefferson - $96K in cold cash in the fridge?
Democratic Congressman/Obama aide Rahm Emanuel - buying aforementioned Senate seat?
Democratic Congressman Christopher Dodd - using his position to coerce favorable mortgage terms?
Democratic Congressman Barney Frank - a bit "cozy" with Fannie Mae?

So what did I see touted as "top news story" on my home page last night? This:

Sen. Craig restroom tanking as tourist destination

The men's room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where Republican Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting is losing it appeal as a tourist stop, an official said.

Wow. Even as a de facto 527 for the Democratic party - dudes, you are just embarrassing yourselves, OK?
I mean, you can distract some of the people some of the time....

Props to the AP, though, for getting Craig's Republican identification clarified within the first dozen words....
