Newspapers are stupid.

But what the fuck are you going to use to wrap up your fish?

Our paper is no exception, yesterday publishing the May 19th "column" by William "The Bloody" Kristol from the New York Times titled "Depite party, McCain still can win".
And by column, I mean the rantings of a lunatic jerking off onto a typewriter.

It's bad enough that the "paper of record" for whom Kristol works can't find the time to fact check his columns.
But it's particularly bad when our local paper publishes said column a day later with the same factual errors.

Kristol proclaims: "I can't find a single recent instance of a candidate who ultimately became his party's nominee losing a primary by this kind of margin" (referring to Obama losing by 41 point in WV).
By the late morning of the 19th when the column was first published, numerous websites had already corrected Kristol:
Romney beat McCain in Utah by 85 points.
Huckabee beat McCain by (put your irony hat on) 41 points in Arkansas. So did Romney in Colorado.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the New York Times hired this person to begin with given everything he's been wrong about. Not the least of which, his views of the so-called "war on terror" and the Iraq debacle.
Fine, they hired him.
Why do other papers have to publish his foolishness?
