Questions for the Times

QUESTIONS FOR THE TIMES….You’ll all be excited to hear that the New York Times editors and reporters who worked on the John McCain non-affair story will be answering your questions on Friday. If you have a question, you can submit it to askthetimes@nytimes.com. Here’s mine:

  1. Yes or no: do you think John McCain had an affair with Vicki Iseman?

  2. If yes, why do you think so? If no, why did you spend several hundred words insinuating that he did?

OK, that’s actually two questions. Or three, depending on how you count. But, really, isn’t that pretty much the whole thing? If McCain didn’t have an affair, there’s no story. If he did, then let’s hear the evidence. The rest of the story about the Paxson lobbying is mildly interesting, but we all know perfectly well that no one really cares about it.
