Are You a Flake?

I think FOX News' Chris Wallace is a good guy, a fair and balanced guy, in fact.  So, that he would allow himself on his show yesterday to ask of GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann whether or not she was a flake demonstrates just how powerful still the elite media and the professional pundits and politicians are in setting the national agenda and establishing the terms of the debate.  According to that agenda and those terms, anyone, and I do mean anyone, who even looks like they're uncomfortable with, much less actually challenges the status quo established inside the beltway and along the NY-to-LA axis is a flake (or stupid or evil) and must be quickly and publicly discredited as such.
