Washington Post Pimps for Republicans Again

Oh-so-wise Villager Chris Cilizza, in the Washington Post today, quotes this without a word questioning it:

"Perception is becoming Romney’s reality and these issues have now risen above mere distractions,” said John Weaver, a Republican consultant and former senior adviser to Sen. John McCain’s (R) 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns. “The President has had the worst three months of any incumbent, due to the economy, since George H. W. Bush in 1992"

The worst three months since 1992 due to the economy?  As usual, I guess we are supposed to forget the three months from September to December 2008, under George W. Bush, when the Dow lost about 3300 points, and job losses rose to 800,000 a month.

But as usual, any lie told by a Republican, no matter how preposterous, is fine with the Washington Post.

Pimping ain't easy. It takes more than David Brooks, Karl Rove, Mark Halperin to revive the flaccid drive of conservatives

I don't think any of those three could raise an erection for anything other than a lynching.
