The interesting thing…

February 28, 2009

I’m tempted to count how many times I hear the phrase “The interesting thing is…” when listening to the talking heads commenting on news and issues on radio and TV. However, I don’t think I can count that high.

From Diane Riems to Meet The Press (or Press The Meat, Scott Bateman), almost every opinion or statement begins with these four words of introduction.
Is it taught in pundit college? Or the same syndrome that has John McCain beginning every sentence with “My friends..”?
