Wingnuts Furious About Three-Month-Old Veep Debate And Zzzzzzz

knock knock, who's there, ghost andrew breitbart!Bloated cub reporter Matthew Boyle is so mad you guys. Did you know that Martha Raddatz, who moderated the vice presidential debate, has close personal ties with a certain Kenyan Impostor? And that he came to her wedding to some guy she has since divorced? Because it was 400 years ago? And that neither she nor the presidential debate commission “disclosed” this to the public? Except for the 135,000 stories on Google about it, and the spokesman who addressed it? Wait, we are not in October 2012? We are in January 2013? THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE WE STILL WRITING ABOUT THIS???


ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz said Monday evening that the fact President Barack Obama attended her wedding to her now ex-husband Julius Genachowski—Obama’s Federal Communications Commission chairman—“had nothing to do with what I did at the debate.”

Raddatz moderated the only vice presidential debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, the GOP vice presidential nominee, in the 2012 campaign. Neither she nor the Commission on Presidential Debates disclosed to the public that she was once married to an Obama cabinet official or that the president attended that wedding.

OK, so what we get from this is that they did not disclose to the public that she was once married to an Obama cabinet official or that the president attended that wedding. Got it. Care to add anything?

ABC News spokesman David Ford only admitted that the president attended Raddatz’ wedding while the network and Raddatz were under intense scrutiny ahead of the vice presidential debate.

So everybody knew about it? So it was in fact “admitted”? Ahead of time? We see. (We do not see.) We know it’s a slow news day, Boyle. Maybe you could find some black people being black, and write about their blackness? Hint: we heard there are a couple in the White House. Might want to look into it.
