Sometimes they make my eyes bleed

Sweet Jesus, this article in the Washington Post is as about as bad as it gets. This country is in need of some real leadership and instead we get an article about why former President Clinton's indiscretions matter for Hilary Clinton.

I can't, for the life of me, figure out why they even bothered with this. Their central tenet is that Bill is a liability because of his past, yet in this article they note that the former President is incredibly popular. The only population that cares about this crap is the press. They have completely manufactured this controversy and will make sure that it is all over the evening news and Sunday morning talk shows.

Here is the thing that the press must come to understand, the American people do not need endless examinations regarding the minor weaknesses of our leaders. Instead, we need substantive and thoughtful explorations of the major issues. If they just put half their energy into looking at these issues, there is no telling how much better off we would be.
