This morning on his popular teevee programme Sunday INCITE!, host Charlie Sykes predicted that once Barack Obama gets elected president of the United States and the "elite mainstream media" finally gets around to investigating Obama's true connections with such figures as William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, the people who voted for Obama are going to be upset.
Seated alongside Sykes was a member of the "elite mainstream media," Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist Patrick McIlheran. Sykes didn't blame McIlheran directly, but he should have.
Because the best McIlheran has been able to come up with are hyperlinks to the crazed "Corner" bloggers at National Review Online and his own unsupported ditherings that Ayers and Obama are intellectual soulmates of identically radical disposition.
So long as McIlheran isn't out applying shoe leather to the pavement in Chicago, which is only an hour's drive from his office, he's just as responsible as anybody for Charlie Sykes's sad disappointments.
