Note to McCain Lackeys: You Might Want to Have a Talk with John

Carpetbagger has some good advice for supporters of John McLame they'd do well to heed:

If Republican hacks are going to go on national television to attack Barack Obama for supporting a U.N. Security Council resolution on Russia’s aggression towards Georgia, they probably ought to know that John McCain supports the same U.N. Security Council resolution on Russia’s aggression towards Georgia.

Now, if we had a healthy political press, this would have made for some highly entertaining television. However, we have a screaming bunch of assmonkeys who don't have the first fucking clue as to how to perform little journalistic functions like fact checking. If it's not in their teleprompter, they have no idea it exists. So we get pieces like this, wherein a McCain apologist attacks Barack Obama for a position McCain also holds, and it takes the fucking bloggers to point this out.

You know. The same bloggers who are derided as Cheeto-scarfing, Mom's-basement-dwelling amateurs by our "professional" news media.

I weep for my country.

I strongly suspect that some of those despised bloggers are among the best sources in the country today for accurate reporting.
