This is over two weeks old and it's still pissing me off.

Ron Fournier THE ASSOCIATED PRESS reports that Kerry has chosen Edwards as his running mate and these are the words he uses
"Obsessed with secrecy, Kerry kept his decision to himself until the last possible minute.."

What the fuck? This is a news story and Fournier just pulled out of his ass his OPINION or FANTASY that Kerry is obsessed with secrecy. I don't even have to tell you that "the last possible minute" would have actually been the 26th-29th at the DNC so that makes absolutely no sense.
Now maybe Fournier doesn't have access to anyone in the Kerry campaign so he couldn't ASK why Kerry kept the decision process private but if he had just watched The Daily Show when Terry McAuliffe, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, was on, he would have known that the reason Kerry wasn't making it a public contest was basically that he didn't want any hurt feelings.
That makes sense.
Now "obsession with secrecy" is not a trait I have been comfortable with in my President for the last 3 1/2 years, so, if you have some factual basis for that statement I would surely like to hear it before November 2nd. If you were just pulling it out of your ass, kindly stuff it back in.
