Our pathetic media.
Long-time CBS reporter Bob Schieffer asks Presidential wannabee Mike Huckabee (no transcription, my memory):
Schieffer: Can you give me a double-dog dare pinkie swear assurance that you aren't interested in becoming someone else's Vice-Presidential running mate?
Huckabee: Well, I would consider talking with Giuliani about his becoming my running mate.
Bob, how hard is it? You've been doing this for a long time. You know damn good and well that no candidate, especially before any primaries, will give any honest answer to this question. They could be polling in negative numbers and still spin that they only have eyes for the top spot.
Don't waste my time. Waste yours, I don't care. But not mine.
