Is this really NEWS?

Exclusive: Obama to call McCain 'erratic in crisis'

"Branding his opponent as “erratic in a crisis,” Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is preempting plans by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to portray him as having sinister connections to controversial Chicagoans.

Obama officials call it political jujitsu – turning the attacks back on the attacker."

You're reporting that Obama is going to Preemept John McCain's attacks? No in-depth serious journalism research to see if those radical connections lead anywhere? No explanation for even why the don't? Nothing? Just "that mean McCain guy is about to say mean things against obama and we found out...and told obama...and he said he's gonna be mad and say some things back....YEA BOYEEEE! POLITICAL JUJITSU!....HE's SUCH A COOL GUY!"

How ridiculous. 

Well...I don't agree with Preemtive Political Strikes. I would rather he use diplomacy.
