A sanctified solon delivers: It’s dumb to pretend that humans are saints. To cite one example, the sanctification of Saint Joe Paterno has turned out very poorly.
The sanctification of Saint John McCain went rather poorly too. For many years, the press corps took a ridiculous stance with respect to their sanctified solon.
Inevitably, ambitious people take advantage of such manifest nonsense. For many years, the press corps’ behavior was dishonest and dumb—and McCain sometimes took advantage.
Today, though, Saint McCain is back, earning his wings on the actual merits. Responding to the slanders of Huma Abedin, McCain stood on the floor of the Senate and told the nut cases in his own party that it was time to shut up.

By this point, both teams need to stand and tell their nuts to shut up. What MSNBC did in response to the killing of Trayvon Martin constitutes one of the most disgraceful episodes we’ve ever seen from a news org.
It was considered OK in the liberal world, which disgraced itself through its total silence. It was considered OK by the nation’s “media reporters.”
It wasn’t OK. Not even close.
Many people should tell Michele Bachmann that, at long last, it’s time to shut up. Today, a sanctified solon spoke, setting a winning example.
