During her Republican National Convention intro speech last night, Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin attacked just about everybody other than God, country, Republicans and running mate John McCain, with the media coming in for a predictable pounding. Then, during the roll call of states to formally annoint McCain, CNN did its part to confirm her low opinion of the press. After Arizona, McCain's home state, pushed his vote tally over the top, the network briefly flashed a bottom-of-the-screen graphic declaring that he'd just earned the "Democratic Party nomination" -- which undoubtedly came as a surprise to all those Dems in Denver, who thought they'd voted for Barack Obama. Sarah's right: We media weasels do suck! -- Michael Roberts
