You know what? I'm sort of annoyed about the gatecrasher story. Because this is supposed to be our story, an obscure little political gossip story that only political junkies know and care about. The kind of story that political junkies could tell people about, sort of like the blue candidate for Montana Senate, or one of the less well-known Watergate stories, such as perhaps some of the better parts of the originally proposed Gemstone.
It's not the first great obscure little political gossip story that was ruined by the cable nets -- that would be the Gary Condit thing, summer of 2001.
Stupid cable nets.
