As If On Cue . . .

Just yesterday, I wrote this:
One of primary “skills” demonstrated by Hillary and most of her surrogates during this campaign is the ability to evade questions by authoritatively answering, with encyclopedic detail, some other question from an alternate universe where everything can be turned to her political advantage.
And now I find the following, which is both a perfect example of what I’m talking about, and a perfect example of how the media should respond:

Whenever one of Clinton’s surrogates launches into what Bill Maher calls “the bullshit portion of the answer,” the appropriate response should always be “That’s not what I asked. Would you care to answer the question?”
