All this says is that there are pompous asses in the media on both 
sides (are there only two?) of the political spectrum.   Which does 
not make any of it right, but it happens, and it's not the end of the world.

At the risk of starting an even bigger discussion, I think the 
Supreme Court decision this week is much more important in the long 
term than the Senate dropping to only an 18 seat majority for the 
Democrats.  I'm sure the owners in the broadcasting industry are 
happy, as political ads have become a major source of revenue.  And 
since the saying is that all politics is local, the majority of that 
advertising goes to local media.
