What He Said.

I meant to piss on the passing of that old Clinton-hater David Broder, but it was difficult to come up with anything especially pithy (Know: pun intended.) about his particularly bland brand of evil's banality. Fortunately somebody was more inspired than I am on this subject: Driftglass. So I'll just let him do the talking. Here is a pithy sample:

David Broder -- this "Dean of the Washington press corps" -- totally missed out on covering the greatest story of his time; the utter collapse of the American news media and the mutation of the GOP from a political party into a dangerously fascistic cesspit of oligarchs, lunatics and rubes.It was a story which his background and years of hard work had almost uniquely prepared him to cover, and one that was literally staring him in the face for much of the last 20 years.

And he completely fucking blew it.

So megadittoes Driftglass, thanks for reminding us what a milquetoast shithead Broder was. By the way, I recommend clicking through to the Driftglass site, and checking out the new masthead, one of the most fabulous in the whole Blogosphere.
