Fodder: My daughter! My sister!

One of the very strange things about the government, and the Village, response to WikiLeaks is that it has fallen into two absolutely contradictory spheres. The first is “ZOMG! This is terrorism as threatening as Saddam Hussein’s WMD al Qaeda!” and “Well, actually, anybody actually paying attention already knew all this stuff.”

Glenn documents this week’s version of this running contradiction, with side-by-side clips of Joe Biden saying one thing, and then the other, first to Andrea Mitchell, and then to Dancin’ Dave.

I suppose you could say that means that Gregory never really went to school on Russert’s Gotcha on Tape! journalism, but I suspect complicity is the more likely explanation.
