Who's Smearing Who?

Paul Mirengoff has all the angles covered in his analysis on Barack Obama's decision not to visit U.S. troops at a military hospital in Germany. In the end Mirengoff reaches the same conclusion I had reached: It simply wasn't worth Obama's time.

But of course the media - working in cahoots with the Obama campaign - was willing to stoop to the lowest levels just to cover for Obama:
Caught between two unsatisfactory explanations – one insufficient and the other false – the campaign attempted to shift the blame to John McCain. Thus, Andrea Mitchell reported that, according to the Obama campaign, McCain foreign policy advisers with connections to the Pentagon may have “had something to do with this.”
Talk about "smears", huh?
