Oh, Michael Grunwald, you hit the nail in the head with this one. Maybe that has caused my lack of devotion to the news cycle the past couple weeks [I was also outside camping out for a week, then was overcome with attention on The Office's return - which is airing a new episode tonight at nine!] Obama's comments were misinterpreted, and then shown true in last night's "debate", where the first half hour was devoted to unsubstantial issues because that's what America's interested in. It's just ridiculous, the media spin, lately. I can barely stand it, and therefore I haven't been following it.

So what?
