Great: WaPo Sending Its Very Own Blair/Glass/Beuachamp To Iraq

Wow. This is unbelievable.

This jackass Amit Paley has been busted an absurd number of times for serious journalistic screw-ups in Washington DC -- where there are so many other journalists and people reading how they're portrayed in the press that incompetents can't prosper for long -- so the Washington Post figures, "Let's send him to Iraq where people can't readily fact-check his stories, thus sparing us the indignity of running massive corrections on his stories week after week! Problem solved!"

Yeah, right. Problem solved, Washington Post. Problem solved.

This guy can barely go a paragraph without need of a correction or major walk-back (requiring the chastisement of the paper's ombudsmen) in DC -- where everyone has each other's phone number, where anyone you need to talk to is no more than ten miles away, where the politics are straightforward and simple (Democrats good, Republicans evil), and where only certain parts of the city have murder rates exceeding those of Iraq -- and the Washington Post figures this is the sort of details-oriented self-starting perfectionist it wants reporting from Baghdad?

Really?

Who's he married to, I wonder?

Thanks to andycanuck.

Are we allowing Canadians on our internet now?

When the fuck did that happen?

North American Union, baby. It's not coming, it's already here. An information superhighway connecting us with our dirty, smelly neighbors to El Norte.
