Just yesterday I posted about the John McCain campaign’s almost instantaneous response to CNN’s bashing McCain for the “Bitch” incident. What used to be called the “news cycle” now cycles several times an hour.
But it’s not just campaign cut-and-thrust that moves faster than ever today. So does the attempt to cash in on anything that erupts in the news. A few weeks ago it was the “Don’t Tase Me, Bro!” kerfuffle that was converted within hours to YouTube music videos. Now another overnight business is born so Hill-haters can get their “How Do We Beat the Bitch?” t-shirts and more. Check it out here as we ask what Lincoln would think.
