I’ve been watching MSNBC for a little bit today and they’ve been talking quite a bit about the segment of the population still upset about Hillary not getting the nomination. The humorous/infuriating thing about this coverage is that it would take two hands to count the number of times one of the correspondents or pundits has explicitly conceded that this issue is getting too much coverage but that they basically just think it’s fun to talk about. Chris Matthews was on with a crowd of Hillary-supporters behind him, split between those who are now supporting Obama and those who are still holding out for Hillary. This may not be a particularly important fight, Matthews conceded, but “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” Journalism at its finest, America. And this is the pro-Obama network. Sigh.
UPDATE: In the wise words of Chuck Todd, “I think in a few days we’re gonna look back at this and realize these people were the equivalent of the Ron Paul groupies who are gonna be at the Republican Convention.”
