Wow

The blog you posted is an excellent read.

wow . . .--

it's overused, but it works.

:(

At least this person admits it--

the others deny it--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I don't think he really intended to though.

It just slipped out in his article about the media in general.

It probably didn't even think many would pay attention.

Relevant quote from editor:

Early in the campaign, The Times decided to remain low key in its coverage of Ron Paul, the libertarian Texas congressman, and Rick Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator. Their strong showings on Tuesday, following the serial derailments of other contenders, showed just how hard it is for the paper to read the plotline of this contest.

In its coverage of Tuesday’s results, The Times moved quickly to set a new narrative: New Hampshire might not be so important now (a premise that undercuts Mitt Romney, who hopes New Hampshire is important); this will be a long campaign (Mr. Romney, hoping to lock things down in January, is dinged again); Rick Santorum is the new rising star (or, I wonder, is he the next whack-a-mole victim?).

Was just about to post that.

With cooperation we'll get the story right, that's the great thing about the Internet, information just flows.

If this were in print or on TV it would be the end, except for maybe a small correction a few days later that nobody would notice.

thanks

true is true

Brilliant article that explains why we love Dr. Paul:
