AP’s Liz “The Donut” Sidoti delivers for McCain — AGAIN

NOTE FROM JOHN: Get a room, Liz.

A couple hours ago, I wrote this:

Last week, almost before Obama had finished his speech, AP’s Charles Babington pumped out a hatchet job. Watch how quickly the article praising McCain gets published tonight. It’s probably already written. You know Sidoti and Fournier fought over who got to write it.

Sidoti won. Tonight, the McCain speech is being widely panned. Yet, as expected, Sidoti delivered for John McCain:

Not merely a Republican. Not merely a candidate. John McCain cast himself as a leader for all Americans, regardless of party or status.

Sidoti’s admiration for McCain is unwavering. And, while I’m not comparing the AP writer to Shakespeare, she could have just used this passage from Julius Caesar and saved some time:

Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus; and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs, and peep about
To find ourselves dishonourable graves.

McCain should be delivering donuts and coffee to Sidoti.
