I'm not usually outraged by outrages-of-the-week, but I do think this recent McCain pandering gotcha is nicely illustrative of the basic double standard in the media's treatment of Democrats and Republicans. Kerry or Gore were repeatedly pilloried as liars in the press for making entirely accurate statements; if either had been caught actually altering the details of their own biography in order to pander to the city they happened to be in, who among us can imagine the orgy of self-righteous recrimination that would have followed?
