Election-driven news and views . . . by Jim Geraghty.



Dana Milbank knows how to twist the knife when critiquing Obama:

But Obama’s response to Blagojevich questions has been decidedly junior varsity. Begging off because of an ongoing investigation? Hiding behind Patrick Fitzgerald’s skirt? Warning a reporter not to “waste” a question and asking for an alternative question? All four techniques were popularized by Bush.

But will anyone else in the White House press corps concur? Or will they conclude that their “instinct” tells them that everything is fine and not worth looking into?
