There are 311,000,000 Americans living in this country.

There are 100 senators representing those 311 million Americans.

There are 435 voting members in the House of Representatives, six non-voting members.

There are dozens of living former presidential candidates.

So out of this vast pool of people that have just as valid an opinion on the news of the day as anyone else, who has the privilege of being the most frequent guest on Meet the Press? John McCain, who surpassed Bob Dole with his 64th appearance on the show. Since the beginning of this year (a total of twelve weeks), McCain has been booked eight times, far and away more than any other person, including the actual GOP presidential candidates.

Congratulations, Meet the Press, you have just confirmed your utter disdain to informing your viewership and your complete irrelevance.
