>Rat Overboard!

>Y’know, when a Democrat President loses the Washington Post…well.

Beseems the Post has found a wee bit of fudging in Mr. Obama’s rousing speech on his administration’s salvation of the auto industry — and they’re citin’ facts and figures.

When your spin is so blatant even you own side can’t bring itself to remain quiet about it, it might be time to give it up. Why, heck, even The Wiener managed to do that much after he was taken to task.

The President, though? He’s convinced his phonily-rosy claims of having stiffened Detroit’s “recovery” with a diamond-shaped blue pill of no-cost fed.gov assistance are Just Fine.*

Facts: why face them when you can just give a nice-sounding speech instead? It’s the D.C. way.

    >It's not full Campaign Season yet. The Post won't be talking this way next year. They'd back Jeff Dahmer, if the GOP were the alternative. And when they did, they'd be able to demonstrate their objectivity by pointing to an editorial they ran two years earlier, where they said that killing and eating your sexual partners was "considered almost as controversial as right-to-work laws by some conservative pundits".

    >I recall Johnson deciding not to run for re-election after "losing Walter Cronkite".Could we be so lucky?On the other hand, the result was Nixon…but I don't see even a Nixon in the wings this time 'round. (and ol' Tricky's looking better and better – well, not so bad – all the time)Q
