A Fairy Tale: The Delighted Republican and the Passive Governor
Michael Leahy, a WaPo staff writer, offered a piece today that serves as a prime example of what is wrong with American mainstream media today. Leahy's piece is so devoid of proper grammar, it must have either been ghost-written by a seventh grader who can wing a good piece of writing for his age or it was an attempt by Leahy to discredit Sarah Palin as someone whose mettle had been tested in the national election and found lacking, perhaps even sorely. For the sake of argument and for giving Leahy the benefit of the doubt, I will assume it was the latter.
Leahy's caricature has had the opposite effect on me than the one intended, as such ventures into fantasy land by the mainstream press often do for conservatives, because it is just the latest in a long list of examples of the most brutal testing Palin was forced to withstand – that of irresponsible journalism.
