Funniest News Item of the Year
I know I’m going out on a limb with that title, given that we’re still in the first month of the year, but I can’t imagine anything topping this one for sheer guffaw power for at least the next 12 months. You know how Palin supporters are always complaining about how the media is obsessed with Sarah Palin? Well, now they’re mad because Dana Milbank wrote a column pledging NOT to write about Palin!
Here’s Doug Mataconis’s reaction:
As Dodd Harris noted last night, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank suggested a Sarah Palin-free February from the political media.
On the whole, it doesn’t sound like a bad idea, especially if Palin reciprocates by non Tweeting, Facebooking, or appearing before the unquestioning adoration of Sean Hannity or Greta Van Susteren. You’d also think it would make Sarah Palin’s supporters happy considering the numerous complaints they make over how the media is “obsessed” with Sarah Palin.
You could think that, but you’d be wrong.
I will not link to anything Andrew Breitbart is associated with, but you can get to the article through Doug’s link.
