Pew: Jesse Jackson Beats Phil Gram for Top Campaign Storyline

17 07 2008

I suppose I am more annoyed than surprised that media coverage of former Senator Phil Gram calling American’s a bunch of whiners was outdone by Rev. Jesse Jackson remarking on how he wanted to cut Senator Barack Obama “nuts off.”

Interestingly enough, stories about the candidates courting Hispanic voters was reported on just as much as Iran was, while Iraq did not make the list of top campaign stories at all. Of course, neither did Afghanistan either. This strikes me as rather odd considering Obama has held consistent 30 point lead over McCain among Hispanic voters for months, and no war is being waged in Iran at the moment, whereas the U.S. currently has two failing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
