Great Moments In Journalism

Why on earth would anyone outside the wingnut welfare state hire a disgraced right-wing asshat like Ben Domenech?

The White House ripped CBS News on Thursday for publishing an online column by a blogger who made assertions about the sexual orientation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, widely viewed as a leading candidate for the Supreme Court.

Ben Domenech, a former Bush administration aide and Republican Senate staffer, wrote that President Obama would “please” much of his base by picking the “first openly gay justice.” An administration official, who asked not to be identified discussing personal matters, said Kagan is not a lesbian.

CBS initially refused to pull the posting, prompting Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy, to say: “The fact that they’ve chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010.” She said the network was giving a platform to a blogger “with a history of plagiarism” who was “applying old stereotypes to single women with successful careers.”

The network deleted the posting Thursday night after Domenech said he was merely repeating a rumor.

So…  Kagan is rumored to be openly gay?

Um.

Spot The Ringer

BT helpfully walks us through Michelle Malkin’s brilliant and insightful guide on how to spot liberals masquerading as teabaggers.  In short, anyone who is embarrassingly stupid and extreme must be a plant.  That sure is an awful lot of ringers…

Oh, and thank you so much, Jason Levin, for giving this ridiculously lame excuse credibility.  Like the teabaggers even need your help to look crazy.
