The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

It's Monday, here's a short BushWhack to start your week...

  • The New York Times (new motto: We fold like origami), has admitted that they violated their own policy when it published the MoveOn ad that slighted General Petraeus when they charged the group $65,000 when it should have charged them $142,000 for the ad. (This is all find and good. As I’ve said before – I can take or leave MoveOn… but I wonder what a review of Fox “News” ad revenues would show if they were audited…)
  • Apparently the Washington Post is surprised that presidential candidates Hillary Clinton (D-NY) appeared on a multitude of the Sunday talk shows and didn’t say much of anything… and that Rudy Giuliani is pandering to his audience… apparently politicians have never done anything like this before…
  • And have we mentioned? That there is at least one congressman who doesn’t like Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington’s annual list of the “most corrupt members of Congress?” Never mind that the congressman in question is currently under federal investigation. Rep. John Doolittle (r-CA) Doolittle is now calling the group “underhanded and vile” and said that there is “nothing responsible or ethical” about the work they do… (Hmmmm, I think the representative doth protest to much…)
