Open Letter To the Media

Dear Media,

I thought it might interest you to know that Palin's candidacy for Vice President has NOT been a lightning rod, as reported, ad nauseum, by you, all day long.

This is because she's not a candidate. There's no such thing as a candidacy for Vice President, in either major party. Palin is not vying for any office, much less that of Vice President of the United States. She is the running mate of Presidential Candidate John McCain. Her presence on HIS ticket has been a lightning rod. Whether she will assume the office of Vice President is solely contingent on whether McCain wins his campaign for the Presidency.

This is something any school child knows. So, if you could stop insulting me, your audience, by wrongly assuming I'm less educated than a six year old and also stop making your anchors look like uneducated morons, that would be really, really cool of you.
