Is there some sort of prize being given to the reporter who can best spew Karl Rove talking points about Obama? I mean, even without a secret ballot, you gotta give the trophy to David "White House" Gregory:

GREGORY: Yet, Jay, you know that conservatives are beginning to make an argument here about Obama, that he's famous for being famous, that he's a light weight, that he's presumptuous, that he's self-absorbed, and that there's something mysterious about him. All this talk about whether it's weirdness or that you can't quite nail down what his core is all about, is to say there's question mark above this guy's head. Until you get that answered, you have to vote for the guy you know and trust. That's McCain.

Nevermind the nine houses and the five hundred dollar shoes, what about the anti-choice platform plank and the foul-mouthed temper? We've only just begun to know all about that...
