A Fine Tuned Sense of the Bullshit

The thing about blogging is that so often, you are writing pretty hot and heavy, as quickly as possible. Still, I'm guessing - or hoping! - that Politico's Jonathan Martin regrets using this as the lede of his "Hey, it turns out that Ashley Todd is a big Hoaxy McLiar" post with this sentence:

Seems like McCain just can't catch a break.
Yeah, dude! McCain came this close to catching that "hey-one-of-our-volunteers-got-cut-by-a-knife-wielding-psychopath" GAME CHANGER. Oh, that must have sucked when that didn't quite come through!

Of course, maybe Martin doesn't regret it, if he takes after his colleague Ben Smith, who, as it turns out, behaved like quite the fucking pissant over the whole matter. I guess that's what happens when you jump over the cliff at the behest of Matt Drudge.

I'm definately adding "ego driven twattery masquerading as journalism" to my tag list.

Thanks for the link.
