McCarthy's Defenders: As Partisan As She Is

It certainly is interesting who the NYT has on its speed-dial-- and who it doesn't have.

One of the defenders of McCarthy, Rand Beers, is already known to be a strong Kerry partisan, pal of Richard Clarke's, anti-Bush peacenick liberal agitator.

Riehl World View already told us that.


Another quoted defender of hers, Steven Simon, wrote a book called The Next Attack: The Failure of the War on Terror and a Strategy for Getting It Right. And co-wrote or co-edited another book with, shock of all shocks!, Richard Fucking Clarke.

A bosom chum of Rand Beers and, geeze, what are the odds?, Mary McCarthy as well.

The New York Times fails to mention this in its article. A passionate Kerry contributor, donating the MAXIMUM amount to Kerry despite the fact she's just on a government salary, is being defended by OTHER strong Gore & Kerry partisans?

That would have seemed interesting to have noted, no? So I imagine the New York Times -- with their crack journalistic cadre and multiple layers of painstaking editorial oversight -- must have just plum missed that.

Apparently the biggest difference between the MSM and bloggers is that bloggers have learned how to use the obscure technology called a "free web-based search engine."

As Marion Ravenwood said (again), cigarette bobbing snidely in her mouth, "I guess it must have just slipped his mind."

Thanks to Slublog for finding that.

(Note: I said BLOGGERS could use a search engine. I didn't say specific bloggers, like myself, could.)
