Balance: Yur doin it wrong

This just in -- actually, these just in -- from the McClatchy cousins. In case you're wondering, the stories appear one atop the other on the "Politics" page.*

Above them is a better question: "Why're the media so excited about the vice-presidential pick?" To which two potential answers suggest themselves:

1) Dunno. Why're you?
2) If these're the depths we're sinking to, why'ren't we thinking about, oh, a weeklong moratorium on campaign news?

Just a suggestion.

* Presented, it appears, as "news" -- not the sort of point-counterpoint slop that might justify the "Earth Round! Earth Flat!" hed treatment.
