Take action now:

Katie Couric to finally bring tough questions to the presidential race

Perky Katie Couric [1] has decided to do something about the MSM's complete inability to call the presidential candidates on their endless lies and misleading statements, and will be asking them a series of tough questions in the coming days ("10 Tough Questions For 10 Top Candidates", link). And, I applaud her for her efforts [2].

So far, the MSM has almost completely refused to discuss important policy matters, prefering to concentrate on horserace, smears, and so forth (extreme example: link).

Now, Perky Katie is going to change that, with questions like the following:

* "If you were elected president, what one book - besides the Bible - you would bring with you to the White House?"

* "Besides your family, what are you most afraid of losing?"

* "Who is the single most impressive person you've ever met?"

[1] Disclaimer: I have to admit that this video (youtube . com/watch?v=c5a7QEHMx-4) really humanizes her, turning her from a robotic Democrat partisan into someone that I'd frankly like to get to know. I only watched the first part, and I guess she says or does something anti-Dan Rather on it. But, all I could concentrate on was other, baser thoughts running through my head.

[2] I will point out, however, that there are 16 GOP and Dem candidates. While I understand the symmetry of it all - "10 Tough Questions For The 16 Major Party Candidates" just doesn't roll of the tongue as well as their title - would it really have cost CBS that much more to simply increase their producers' workload by a mere 60% and thereby give the other candidates just a little TV time?

Here's a tough question for all the candidates: "What will your last words be after you've been convicted of treason and are about to be executed?"

Sounds like questions from a sorority rush. Advantage Clinton.
