Because people like Mark Halperin aren't just grabbing coffee for people, they're "senior" level correspondents. According to Halperin, the McCain has 7 houses gaffe is bad... for Obama.
You know that "this is good for John McCain" thing we Democrats have been joking about?
It's not a joke.
I swear, I would go mad if the blogosphere had never come to life because The Villagers will never call out Mark Halperin for being dumber than a sack of rocks.
UPDATE: Mark Halperin wins an award!
