"Analysis: Palin's age, inexperience rival Obama's"
Can't say Fournier's not loyal.
His WaPo column today is filled with GOP talking points about stadium columns and lots of Greek puns, all of which reflected the Beltway media buzz from Thursday afternoon; media buzz that was completely washed away by Obama's speech last night.

Another "analysis" gem. We'll just highlight one of the more idiotic portions. It's where the AP's Jennifer Loven struggles mightily to keep afloat her divisive, the-Clinton's-stole-the-convention theme. How did she know it was true? Well, because Hillary had the key speaking role Tuesday night. As for Biden's performance in the same time slot last night, here's Loven:
"As the evening's final speaker, Biden held the so-called prime-time slot. Yet, in Eastern and Central time zones, Biden wound up on TV after many folk's bedtimes and it was Bill Clinton people saw, being cheered so roundly that he had to plead "Please stop ... Please sit" to be heard."
For those keeping track, in the Central time zones Biden began speaking at approximately 9:20 last night. But according to the AP, that was "after many folks' bedtime."
We just can't make this stuff up.
