Parody Gone Wrong - For the RIGHT Reasons
Geege Schuman stashed this in Paul Ryan
Oh please. History repeating itself. You never heard of McCain Palin? Reagan Bush? Finding daylight between GOP VP picks and the candidate is a national "inside baseball" pasttime.
The level of vice-presidential-candidate disrespect, though falsely reported, rose to a level much higher than "finding daylight." The point of the story was that so many really smart and reputable people (like yourself) didn't recognize that the report was a joke.
That said, "inside baseball" is a great description of over-scrutinizing. :-)
