Wow! Is this a horrible, horrible example of the sheer, utter degradation of our press corps!
Chris Matthews and various journalistic big shots (No obscure bloggers here) sit around and confirm the terms Kewl Kidz & Queen Bees by lounging around, discussing extremely serious issues with a bored air of "Oh, the issues that the common rabble are concerned about. Tch, tch. So dull!"
Seriously, the American people need to find a way to fire the whole "Gang of 500" with maybe a half a dozen exceptions and replace them all with serious citizen journalists.
