  •  and for the record I read the diary. I thought: (7+ / 0-)

    Meh.

    Didn't rec it. I don't care about it enough to do that.

    But really.

    I just don't get what the big deal is.

    For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.

      I don't see where this diary says any of the things you're accusing me of. I'm saying there was some serious wish fulfillment going on.

      If it's not a big deal, why spill so many electrons on me?

      •  I said: IF that's what your reasoning was. (0+ / 0-)

        can you read?

        You clearly said this the diary that the rumor was put out "just in time for the debate" as if that has some significance.

        Why now? Why not december?

        Sounds like you think someone is floating something for some ulterior motive.

    •  The big deal is this: (7+ / 0-)

      A diary is posted that's nothing but conjecture, even it is a fantasy-come-true for most of us here. No links, no supporting evidence, save for one un-named source, from someone who says he's a journalist.

      I am a journalist and if I were his editor, I would never have let that story as it's written see the light of day. There is no substantiation. None whatsoever. Right now, it's a rumor at best; more probably it's pure fantasy being sold as "fact."

      And yet, the damn thing sits, at 4:45 p.m. CDT, atop the Rec List. We're the Reality-Based Community, and we're collectively drooling like Pavlov's dog.
