Who says there’s no such thing as a stupid question?

The New York Times asks a question about Fred Thompson’s presidential prospects, one that the Times claims is “spurring debate in Internet chat rooms, on cable television and on talk radio.” Here’s the question: “Is America ready for a president with a trophy wife?”
I don’t see why not. In 2004, America came fairly close to electing a trophy husband.
JOHN adds: Funny, I haven’t seen any discussion of this topic, and the Times doesn’t identify a single TV show, talk radio program or chat room. I suppose, though, that every conceivable subject has been discussed in one internet chat room or another. Notice how this technique allows the Times to selectively propagate gossip, rumors and speculation that it thinks may damage a Republican candidate, and justify its conduct with the defense that the subject is “spurring debate” somewhere in the the vast gutter of left-wing web sites and chat rooms.
