Josh Marshall is showing the kind of feistiness that I haven't seen since he went to bat to defend Social Security in early 2005.

That's probably due to two things:
  • The seriousness of the matter (Palin unqualified and right-wing, McCain in neocon land; the supine press).
  • That there is a good chance the Republicans may win.


Joah has been a bit feisty, I agree. And it's warranted.

One apect you pin it to is:

"the supine press"

I'd say that the press hasn't worked up the energy to be supine in the past week. The media has been an active bovine-poop-creating and catapulting machine this month.

It's incredibly dispiriting.

Can they further trivialize the politics of a great nation? Yes, apparently they can do it effortlessly.
