More AP Stupid

"Although Republican presidential candidate John McCain has called Social Security "a disgrace," he still cashes his own retirement check every month."

Ironic, huh? The Media Blog notes that although Barack Obama calls Washington broken, he still cashes his Senate check every month.

It should also be noted that John McCain isn't calling Social Security payments a disgrace, but rather the shaky actuarially doomed financing of the scheme. True enough, if every senior simply stopped cashing his checks and remitted them back to the government, the system would be immediately flush with cash and perfectly solvent. Is the AP seriously suggesting that that's what McCain has himself suggested, or that any senior should do so?

In further irony, to quote Colonel Jessup, the AP rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom our military provides and then questions the manner in which they provide it.

Perhaps, to have a perfectly "clean" and consistent position without any hypocrisy whatsoever, every reporter or editor who works for the AP ought to leave the country they despise so much.
