The Meticulous Political Dance of a Manic Media

We are rounding the bend toward the last act in this season's power play of a Presidential campaign.

Just when you think the two teams couldn't possibly sink any lower in their rabid attempts to kill off the other, another day of media sound bite analysis dawns.

At this moment, it's the Romney riff on how helpless a passenger--i.e. his wife, Ann--would be on a burning plane.

He described the helplessness of this entrapment, including a mention of the plane's unopenable windows.

Rachel Maddow's response to this tidbit is particularly disappointing, because I think so highly of her.

She expresses outrage and shock that Romney may not understand that windows on a plane simply cannot open.

Civil rights, for example.

I am positive Romney knows not only that airplane windows do not and cannot open, but also why this might be so.

I am not positive about his core feelings toward a woman's right to orchestrate her own physical decisions on abortion or any other medical procedure.

I also am soundly uncertain about the veracity of Obama's plans for gay rights.   Offering a public statement of support while backed against the wall does not an authentic freedom make.

Of course, I am well aware of the economy we all are experiencing.

I am reminded often that civil rights must temporarily step aside for the financial good of all Americans.

Economies must first grow, people must have jobs.
