Trump Takes Charm Offensive To New Extremes | Main | Songs With Sweet Melodies But Bitter Lyrics

Hmmm....

Well that guy who said point-blank that Sid Blumenthal pitched the Obama Birtherism conspiracy to him in 2008 is more than just an investigative gadly - he's formerly with McClatchy, so he has credentials, and you understand the importance of credentialism in the media.


Jake Tapper, at least, is asking about it:


But I'm told the rest of CNN is pretending this didn't happen.

Like they pretended Hillary didn't fall.

More: A Hillary campaign manager from 2008 admits that one of their staff was putting this story out there, but says it was just a bad action by a "rouge" individual.

Rouge. Like "red."

Okay, that much I buy.

But "rogue"?

No, I don't think he was rogue.

I think he was just doing what Team Hillary always does: Put out vicious smears steathilly like a knife in the shadows, full of plausible deniability.
