...has administered a Royal Fisking to an article about disaffected Republicans in tomorrow's New York Times. Apparently, one George Meagher, who was an independent voter in a story that ran two weeks ago, has become an instantaneous Republican with the release of Sunday's paper. This while he has decided that Bush deserves the heave-ho.
So why hasn't Mr. Meagher become a Democrat instead of a Republican in the intervening two weeks?
Gosh, if Bush Lied and They Died, you'd think Mr. Meagher would join the Democrats, wouldn't you?
Okay, there's that sound of crickets again. How come the Times can't hire a stand-up guy as a staff writer anymore? You know, like Jason Blair?
Not everyone is happy with the Old Grey Battleaxe these days...
