There are times when people do stuff that is so naked in its self-promotion, an effort to get you to look at someone doing something - anything - to get your attention, but inevitably makes looking directly into the sun in July an appealing prospect.

No better way to start what will be a continuing series in this space featuring the headline-hungry than this item from GOP press secretary syndicated columnist Robert Novak, who reveals that "sources claim" that McCain will announce his VP selection this week, over six weeks in advance of the Republican convention. Speculation says...oh, can the crap - he's doing it to steal back the headlines. "Hey, everyone - look at John! He's got a new friend!" How obvious can you be?

(What will he do now to counteract the buzz that Obama will get from the Dems' convention, one wonders?)
