WaPo Fires a Volley and Misses

By on 2.2.10 | 8:28AM

The Washington Post is doing its best to paint the blossoming conservative revolt against President Obama's policies as a "secretive" network of radicals masquerading as normal people, using New Media outlets to manipulate the political landscape. The American Spectator garners several mentions in the article.

Yes, conservative groups are networked together. Yes, they have many of the same funding sources. Yes, they are using the New Media. Whoopty-do-dang. Take at look at the liberal movement if you want a convoluted mish-mash of who sits on what board who funded that initiative or other.

But — my goodness! — the Heritage Foundation's weekly "blogger's briefing" is catered by Chick-fil-A, which was founded by a Christian! Don't you see the dire consequences of this for the future of our country?

Nice try, WaPo. Maybe next time.
