#rsrh WaPo’s stuff on Chris Hackett isn’t even *wrong*.

This Washington Post article (“Does Redstate blogger Erick Erickson matter?”) is generally not worth commenting on (mostly because the answer is pretty much “Apparently, yes, given that they wrote an article”), but I can’t let this paragraph pass without comment*:

Let me just note the mistakes on that one:

  • Chris Hackett ran for Congress.
  • In 2008 (PA-10, to be precise).
  • In 2010, Pat Toomey ran for Senate.
  • With the enthusiastic support of RedState; he even spoke at our first RedState Gathering*.
  • Toomey then went on to win the 2010 election.

“Layers of fact-checkers and editors,” my eye.

*It’s since been changed to:

Which is, by the way, still wrong.  We won PA-10 (Tom Marino) in 2010.  Try again?

    Why doesnt the guy just go with ‘Neener neener neener’ if he wants to write it so much?

  • Finrod says:

    Notice how they don’t mention, e.g., Marco Rubio, who at one point trailed by *50* points in the Florida Senate primary polling, or how Bill Bennett is now a former Senator.

  • SteveP says:

    Chris Hackett ran for Congress.

    Senate candidates run for Congress the same as House candidates since the Senate is one half of the Congress.

      Hey, thanks for letting me know that I hit the target! Much obliged.

      PS: “unread state.” Hyuck, hyuck, hyuck…

    The left never ceases lying, first it was the tried and false claim that the tea tea party was just a bunch of klanners, then that they were violent, then that were were not real people at all but astroturf, they have no single leader and are totally unorganized and divided against themselves, the list of fabrications is too long to list. They have a half truth in there in that we have primaried some rinos.The tea party is not the republican party and in my life time there have been conservative democrats that served honorably but they are all long gone.The so called blue dogs were just another democrat fraud on the voters.

    Wow, so he’s so irrelevant no one will dis’ him on the record? Sounds pretty powerless to me. It wasn’t until recently I realized the guy making such good points on CNN was a blogger.
