Much as I hate to cast aspersions on anyone – “Ha!” Again I say, “Ha!” – I have my suspicions about this Weekly Standard article by Mark Hemingway on Media Matters for America, and their utter inability to move the needle on anything. I mean, I agree that MMfA can’t, well, move the needle on anything – and, speaking as someone who writes for a political site with actual influence on domestic affairs*, I can agree with the following.
It’s actually a badge of honor among most right-leaning reporters and bloggers to have done something that they find risible.
Indeed, it is. Still, I suspect that Mark’s just mad because the Transcendent Glorious Mind-Lords over there can’t spell his name consistently right.
Unfair? Only superficially: this is the level of reporting that you get from MMfA, you see. Notice that this post is not up to RedState’s front page standards, which is why it’s not there right now.

PS: If you’re wondering why people are suddenly name-checking that website, it’s because the Secret Ascended Masters of Space-Time Itself over there got caught declaring a Crusade against Fox News, complete with infiltration squads. We’re only human, here in the VRWC: if you present us with a rear to give a free kick to, and if you deserve to be kicked, expect
a kick sudden kinetic activity…
*Like The Weekly Standard – and most assuredly not like MMfA.
