Needful Things

Howard Kurtz hits the nail on the head this morning in writing about the media frenzy about whether or not Virginia Governor Tim Kaine might become Senator Obama's running mate:

What, you think we'd rather write about George Bush leaving his successor a record $482-billion deficit? That, of course, is far more important to whatever the next president can accomplish. But a heckuva lot less fun.

What I love about this orgy of pontification is how everyone becomes an instant expert. People whose only experience in Virginia is flying into National Airport suddenly are holding forth on the intricacies of the governor's record.
