Truest statement of the week

Maddow failed to tell it straight Tuesday night. Every president has done these events, not just comical Bush. She failed to be forthright in setting the record straight on Wednesday evening. But the key problem here is the sheer waste of time involved in silly segments like these --and the noxious attitude these segments may breed in the ranks of young liberals. For decades, we liberal hayseeds have loved to laugh at the average American rubes. And we're too dumb to see the way that connects to those bad polling numbers.

-- Bob Somerby addressing Rachel Maddow's 'journalism, "FOR LACK OF A PRESS CORPS! Davey’s liberal use of soft soap continued a growing tradition" (The Daily Howler).
