From today's Kaplan Daily article by Howie "Get That Job?" Kurtz, on Dave Weigel's dismissal as the Daily's blogger ("Right Now") on all things wingnutty:
They (Weigel) said: in private eMails, that Matt "My Life is A" Drudge should "handle his emotional problems more responsibly and set himself on fire;" that conservatives were using the media to "violently, angrily divide America," and news outlets feel the "need to give equal/extra time to 'real American' views, no matter how [expletive] moronic."
We said: OK, so far so good, nothing but the truth.
They (Jim Geraghty, National Review Online) said: "There was definitely a perception that his [Weigel's] blog was designed to make conservatives look bad."
We said: Conservatives need no help from others in looking bad. See 3 1/2 years of blogging below.
They (Kaplan Daily Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli) said: "We don't have the resources or ability to do Supreme Court justice-type investigations into people's backgrounds. We will have to be more careful in the future."
We said: Of course, we wouldn't want to offend any right-wing crackpots, so let the inquisition begin! (Is that the sound of John Peter Zenger spinning in his grave we're hearing?) Mr. Broccoli and your cowardly stenographers - go f**k yourselves...
