Mark Kleiman ably summarizes the tedium of ginned-up campaign "gotcha!" moments:
In putting out that message, Obama's campaign broke a law. The violation was about as egregious as they come: the law requires that a phone call's sponsor be identified within thirty seconds, and in the calls in question that announcement didn't come for a full thirty-eight seconds. Has he no sense of decency? At long last, has he left no sense of decency?
Well, yes, technically the law being cited didn't actually apply to this case: it specifically exempts Presidential preference primaries. But that just shows how utterly untrustworthy B. Hussein Obama is: he's capable of breaking laws that don't even exist! Anyway, it's the principle of the thing.
God damn, I'll be glad when this is over!
