The Tom Brady of mainstream editorial board man-crushes

"It was the perfect Super Tuesday combo:

A White Castle sack on the seat next to me, political talk on the radio andflooring the gas pedal on grandma’s big blue Caddy down the Stevenson.

John McCain’s voice came out of the speakers, trying to fight off a pack ofconservative radio reservoir dogs who were barking for flip-flopper MittRomney. About a quarter-mile ahead was a U.S. senator rushing home to vote.

It was Barack Obama, the so-called Princess Diana of America’s celebritypolitics, or, as I prefer to call him, the media’s beloved and gentle Mr.Tumnus of the presidential campaign. Either way, he’s the Tom Brady of mainstream editorial board man-crushes."
