In Passing

I certainly HOPE not!

We’re DOOMED  Dept.
The AP on Cong.Weiner:
...the pugnacious 46-year old Brooklyn native, who until this mess was widely seen as one of the smartest members of Congress...

Related: Glenn Reynolds:
The people who think they’re smart enough, and morally superior enough, to run everyone else’s lives are risible.  They’re not smart enough to run their own lives competently, and they’re actually, overall, morally inferior — I mean, John Edwards, DSK, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barney Frank, Tax Cheat Tim Geithner, just go down the list...
Which says what about all those beltway and media types who "widely see” these guys as "smart”?

The Press

More of the usual...

Investors Business Daily:

It’s been over two years since the Democrat-led Senate last passed a budget, a fact that puts it squarely in violation of the law...  This hasn’t happened since the budget rules were changed in 1974.  Though required by law to pass a budget, Democrats have just said no.  Yet the media have largely given them a pass on this willful lawlessness.  Why?
Ummm... "Because”?

Hot Air:
Google "Stocks Fall 279 Points” or "Stock Market Falls 279 Points”...  ...Major papers and network online sites have already buried this plunge in the markets as if it just never happened...

We can all imagine how a major stock market plunge would have greeted George W. Bush...
Yes, we can.

Mickey Kaus:
Will the MSM give Breitbart & Co. credit for gratuitously pursuing the truth here, even if it might come at the expense of a media narrative that Rep.Weiner is losing?
No.  Next...?

The Wall Street Journal:
Former NPR Boss Is Hired by NBC

NBC News said Thursday that it had hired Vivian Schiller, who quit as chief executive of NPR in March, to a new role overseeing the news unit’s digital strategy...

Me. Schiller’s new job comes just months after she left NPR amid controversy [link added - o.g.] over political bias...
She should feel right at home.
