The Press

You *could* stop right there...

Glenn Reynolds:

Could it be that the Editorial Board of the Washington Post is a pack of pathetic political hacks

Oh wait, he’s not finished...
...pathetic political hacks who’ll engage in racial hate speech in order to advance the White House’s agenda?
‘‘...the White House’s Democrat agenda...’’ FIFY: Offer void when White House is occupied by a Republican.
Apparently, whole swathes of the electorate are illegitimate just because of their birth.  If you really believe that, you’re doing more to promote division than anyone who signs a dumb White House petition for secession. Disgraceful.
They really do believe.  As I said, yes.

elsewhere (121124):
William Jacobson has doubts:
Does the Editorial Board of The Washington Post even belief what it writes?  I doubt it.  It’s all part of their race card game.

In Passing

Today’s WTF? moment...

Your Government, In The Way  Dept
Michael Duarte, a Red Cross volunteer from California who was supervising the Long Island shelter, hugged the Israel Flying Aid team as they arrived.

If there were any real journalists in New York, somebody’d be looking into this...

‘‘The problem with nanny state governance isn’t just that it’s intrusive.  It isn’t just that it stifles business with over-regulation, and it isn’t just that it empowers busybodies and costs money.  It’s that it distracts government from the really big jobs that it ought to be doing.’’ - Walter Russell Mead

‘‘...The next time your elected local or state official holds a press conference about global warming, the Middle East, or the national political climate, expect to experience poor county law enforcement, bad municipal services, or regional insolvency.’’ - Victor Davis Hanson
