Speaking of vetting
Atrios catches the similarity in talking points between the McConnell office email and John Roberts on CNN:
Could the Dems really have done that bad of a job vetting this family?
John Roberts Some person on CNN, ahead of the curve, Thursday:
I think in this instance what happened was the Democrats didn’t do as much of a vetting as they could have done on this young man, his situation, his family.
Roberts must have been off not to have caught the sense that the story had turned sharply against the Republicans on this well before he went on the air and opened his trap.
