Ezra Klein would like you to know that if you obsess over nontroversies – whether Etch A Sketches or dog meat – you're not normal. 

I think most people in Washington believe voters would make better decisions if they spent more time following politics. But I spend a lot of time following politics, and quite often, I couldn’t be happier that voters are tuning out the inanities that obsess this town. Better that they worry about real mountains rather than hyped-up molehills.

The Washington Post columnist has it right. Sure, these stories are fun, but they’re distractions that conveniently fill air during dead periods of the news cycle.

Note how the headline on Jake Tapper’s Obama dog story changed from this morning. Seems Jake was getting too much credit/blame for the story. It also didn’t help that Google News posted Tapper’s story with this unfortunate headline. “I wasn’t saying that was MY argument, it was the Romney campaign argument. I had to spell it out,” Tapper emphasized on Twitter. (thanks The Daily What)

In which an eight-year-old boy’s decisions, normal for the culture of the country he was living in at the time, are put onto the same plane as a middle-age man’s much-mocked mistake. EDIT: Jake Tapper had to step back from this headline a bit.

Today in downgraded haircuts. John Edwards’ haircuts used to be far more super.

If this was somebody who used the same type of rhetoric about violence against President Obama I would be against it… . This is inappropriate for a President and he goes back to his radical roots again and again and again. Ayers, Wright, Pfleger.
Sean Hannity • Saying a bunch of stupid crap about how Common (a pro-Obama rapper) is a bad influence and shouldn’t visit the White House and stuff. We don’t have much to add to this, other than this: SHUT UP YOU AREN’T A RAP FAN AND YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW WHO THIS GUY WAS UNTIL YOU WERE HANDED A CUE CARD WITH HIS NAME ON IT BEFORE THE SEGMENT. Also, you can’t criticize Common’s poetic license until you take back this approval of Ted Nugent’s non-poetic license, brah. source (viafollow)
