McCain Story: Who Knew What When?

capt.688e793e45884ead8e5c870bae99f10f.mccain_2008_scmc103.jpgKnow the adage that when the media start reporting on themselves, the story is over? How quickly, then, did this story of McCain’s alleged improprieties with a lobbyist evaporate:

U.S. News reminds us all that Drudge had the story first.

Jon Stewart reminds Larry King that dirty politics is icky.
