Sometimes the comments posted to a story on the internet are more pithy and interesting than the story itself. A case in point are these two comments posted on AlterNet in response to a story called "Press Frustration with McCain Bubbles Over" :
How Many Buses?

He has 7 - 9 Homes, 13 cars, it is reasonable to ask how many buses this man has.
There is the old, and apparently now retired straight-talk express, and the more recently acquired forked-tongue express, and apparently now he has the no-talk express to add to his collection.
Just how many are there?
Posted by: chuckjs on Sep 24, 2008 3:46 AM This man and his campaign are a joke. Has it even crossed the minds of the apparent simpletons running this campaign that when you cut off press access to your candidate then it only makes logical sense that the press will go to the candidate willing to talk to them and give their stories.Obama's lopsided coverage is a direct result of McCain's media policy! And it is not lopsided but more like the only story available due to Republican media blackouts.
