Who Needs The Weekly Standard When You've Got The Washington Post?


I no longer purchase the Washington Post. Why? Take a look at what's on their op-ed page today:

  • Speech writer for George W. Bush says Gitmo shouldn't be closed.
  • Charles Krauthammer says Obama has destroyed NASA.
  • Bush's attorney general says Obama administration didn't handle underwear bomber correctly.
  • Bill Kristol says (again) that we should bomb Iran.

Seriously, have you ever seen a sadder collection of Neocons and Bushies? Elsewhere in today's paper, Chris Chillizza and Paul Kane wonder if the GOP is "losing steam."

Not at the Washington Post!

Oh, oops, I forgot to link to any of the above.

Agreed. Wapo's Editorial/Opinions page is a vast wasteland. And then there's Richard Cohen. WTF!

And Richard "torture lover" Cohen is supposed to be one of the "liberal" ones!

Also today: Eugene Robinson (who I do like sometimes) phones in a column critical of Sarah Palin, apparently while sleeping.

OMG--they've stolen the Washington Times's nasty little window on the world...

I work for Target, and I happen to know that we're not opening any stores in or near Tehran.

Oh, but in the Post I can read columns by Sally Quinn (overlong, unedited droning about how she went to a party once in the 1970s, and her preference for sex with the elderly) or Michelle Singletary (Weekly Reader-level writing about how arriviste middle class minorities should save their money and send it to her prosperity gospel church). The best part of the paper now resides in the cat calling on the online comments--until they're overrun by wingnut armies dispatched by talk radio.

It’s barely worth the dollar-a-week subscription price.
