Will No One Stand Up For WaPo’s Poor Pitiful Jennifer Rubin?

Fellows! To the ramparts! Our own beloved fair maiden of the Washington Post editorial page is under attack most foul, and from the most treacherous quarters! Those treacherous traitors being the former ombudsman of the Washington Post! Dudes, he calls her “ugly”! Look, right there: The Ugly Jennifer Rubin. Sure, it purports to be an open letter to Jeff Bezos or someone about what to do with his new fishwrappy plaything. But it is marked throughout with unkindest cuts!

WSJ Spews Bunch of Racist Garbage in Defense of Romney’s Racist Garbage

Oh look, another asshat was given space in the Wall Street Journal Op-Ed section, and it seems fair to say that this asshat is even more ill-informed than the last one. What’s particularly surprising is that this particular asshat, Richard Landes, is a historian at Boston University and yet has absolutely no understanding of Middle Eastern, Arab, or  Ottoman history — it’s kind of fascinating, actually!

Awesome Pundits Just Cannot Stop Saying Idiotic Things About Elizabeth Warren

In the annals of political lying, quoting someone out of context is almost not even surprising any more, as anyone familiar with the “you didn’t build that” nonsense knows (and yes, same goes for “I like to fire people”). The original comment, disconnected from its context, gets lost in volleys of misleading quotes. But it takes a special kind of chootzpah to lie about someone even as you include, right next to your lies, a copy of the very thing you are lying about. Consider this ad for Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign, above. Pretty insane stuff, isn’t it? So of course, it’s perfectly reasonable that red-‘bating doofus Ira Stoll, proprietor of the failed-newspaper-that’s-now-a-website The New York Sun would describe Warren’s position thusly: “Elizabeth Warren Praising Communist China as a Model for America” Read more on Awesome Pundits Just Cannot Stop Saying Idiotic Things About Elizabeth Warren…

Stocks Rally Due To Romney Win 100 Days In Future, CNBC Declares With Straight Face

The stock market. What is it? It is a collection, or “cooperative,” of people who throw bits of paper in the air and scream their faces off. If you are rich, it gives you muneez. If you are poor, it gives your boss muneez. When the stock market goes down, that is because everyone hates the president, but when it goes up, that is because everyone hates the president. If anything, it just makes too much sense! Let us ask CNBC to explain why a stock market surge is due to investors betting on a Romney win, despite the fact that Mitt Romney is not, in fact, actually winning.

WAIT, WHAT?: The Washington Post‘s masterful Chris Cillizza: “A huge crowd today could be a mixed blessing for Obama. On the one hand, it is a potent symbol of the excitement his candidacy has caused worldwide. On the other, thousands and thousands of cheering Germans may not play well stateside. Does a big crowd work to Obama’s benefit or detriment? Or somewhere in between?” The teevee crowd, of course, shares this sentiment. What do these people mean? That the “benefit” is the image of a large, excited crowd, and the “detriment” is that it’s a large, excited crowd of Nazis? [WP/The Fix] Read more on …
