What Part Of "No" Does The MSM Not Understand?

Oct 5th, 2011

Some of you may remember an old Chevy Chase skit from the first season of Saturday Night Live. Week after week, Chase would announce urgently that "Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead" as the top story on that show's ground breaking news parody, Weekend Update. I was reminded of this yesterday while watching the bizarre spectacle of nearly every American media outlet as they covered the "eagerly awaited" press conference held by Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) to announce, for arguably the 100th time, that he is still not running for President.

The media had every reason to be surprised. Wait, no they didn't. As Politico highlighted last week, this may be the most consistent position from any contemporary American politician on any subject whatsoever.
