Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Powerline under fire, again

Fortunately, they’re using popguns, which is about all the intellectual firepower the Minneapolis paper can muster.

Here’s Powerline’s first response. Here’s that of Little Green Footballs.

I googled the author, Tamara Baker, otherwise unidentified by the Star-Tribune. In her piece, she poses as a defender of an independent and free press, against the attacks of the vicious right-wing blogosphere. In her other life, which you can glimpse here, here, here, here, here, and here, she constantly insists upon the right-wing corporate bias of the MSM. Indeed, she even accuses Maureen Dowd (!!) of being anti-Clinton and asks:

"The real question is "Why has the US corporate media, ever since 1999, treated Bush far more gently than ANY Democratic candidate of the last thirty years?"

Whew! Outside of her and her friends, there apparently is no genuinely free press.

Did the folks at the Minneapolis paper know what they were getting when they accepted this op-ed, which tells us one thing, or did they not dig at all into her background, which tells us something else? Are they malign or negligent? Or both?

So I am part of the ’vicious right-wing blogosphere’? Well, I best get to drowning kittens, stealing money from the collection plate, and eating pudding belonging to old people in a nursing home.

Spare me.

Wasn’t it Frist that drowned the kittens?

It's good that people can receive the mortgage loans moreover, that opens up completely new chances.
