shorter ruth holladay: video footage of hillary crying in new hampshire proves that hillary is worse than nixon!
...seriously, folks, this is the pettiest, worst kind of gotcha politics. it's like the "dean scream" but possibly even more shallow and irrelevant. this is exactly why i'm not really following the presidential primaries: the fact that we're discussing hillary's tears instead of... i dunno... her policies shows how utterly broken our political system—and especially our political media—truly is. ¶
