A new definition of Bi-Partisan

From the increasingly irrelevant Atlanta Journal Constitution:

A bipartisan prescription for national health care reform

By Newt Gingrich and Andrew Von Eschenbach

Okay, so the actual op-ed piece itself is not really important, although you can read it here if you're interested. It's pretty much what you would expect, vague, meaningless suggestions like "make healthcare more affordable," and "make healthcare more available," and (swear to God) "Make healthcare more appropriate." So, basically do nothing and let the free market work its fucking bullshit magic or whatever, but that's not really the point.

Here's the point.

I know who Newt Gingrich is, but I had no idea who this Andrew Von MC Escher guy was, so I looked at the bottom of the piece, where they explain who the authors are and I found this:

Newt Gingrich is the founder of the Center for Health Transformation. Dr. Andrew Von Eschenbach is former commissioner of the FDA and senior strategist at the center.

Yeah, that's right. The AJC's idea of bi-partisan means Newt Gingrich and a guy who works for Newt Gingrich.

Goddamned liberal media!

Pathetic. And they wonder why newspapers are dying.

James O'Keefe does Comedy!

Statement from James O'Keefe

On the Landrieu incident

The government has now confirmed what has always been clear: No one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office. Nor did we try to cut or shut down her phone lines. Reports to this effect over the past 48 hours are inaccurate and false.

You know, cutting or shutting down her phone lines would actually have made more sense than whatever it is you were trying to do. So would wiretapping or bugging her office. If you weren't there to do any of those thins, why the hell were you even bothering?

But that's neither here nor there, go ahead and do your little comedy routine, Jimmy.

As an investigative journalist,
HEE HEE! "Journalist"!!!

As an investigative journalist, my goal is to expose corruption and lack of concern for citizens by government and other institutions, as I did last year when our investigations revealed the massive corruption and fraud perpetrated by ACORN.

Ahahaha! He thinks he exposed  massive corruption and fraud! Ahahaha!!

For decades, investigative journalists have used a variety
of tactics to try to dig out and reveal the truth.

Pfffttt!!!! "investigative Journalists"  !!!

I learned from a number of sources

Heh, Heh, "sources"

I learned from a number of sources that many of Senator Landrieu’s constituents were having trouble getting through to her office to tell her that they didn’t want her taking millions of federal dollars in exchange for her vote on the healthcare bill. When asked about this, Senator Landrieu’s explanation was that, “Our lines have been jammed for weeks.” I decided to investigate why a representative of the people would be out of touch with her constituents for “weeks” because her phones were broken.

HaaaHaaaa!!!  He thinks "jammed" means "broken"!  Ah-ha-ha-ha!!!

In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office –


we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office –
to ask the staff if their phones were working.

Also, was their refrigerator running, and did they have Prince Albert in a can!

On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation,

A legal approach, perhaps?

It has been amazing to witness the journalistic malpractice committed by many of the organizations covering this story.

Yes, and just look how black that kettle is!

The public will judge whether reporters who can’t get their facts straight have the credibility to question my integrity as a journalist.

Quantcast Pahahah!!!! "Integrity"!!!! Pah-hha-ha "journalist"!!!! Stop! You

Thank you! I
