Excerpt from Dr. Pitney’s editorial on the National Review Online:

Hillary Clinton’s reference to the Robert F. Kennedy assassination caused a stir. It passed. She apologized, RFK’s son said that it was no big deal, Barack Obama shrugged it off, and smart journalists acknowledged that it was a case study of a media feeding frenzy. At the Politico, John Harris wrote that “Clinton’s error was not in saying something beyond the pale but in saying something that pulled from context would sound as if it were beyond the pale.” In a few days, we’ll hear about it again as we observe the 40th anniversary of RFK’s death. Then the incident will return to limbo, and Clinton will linger in political purgatory.
