Oh, Times. I don't read you more than once or twice a week. I pick you up on Sundays because the Sunday Trib has blown goats the last few weeks. You don't give me much, except for some decent front-page stuff. Your sports section is horrid, your arts section is so irrelevant and full of snooty garbage. So honestly your periodic scoops are about all you offer me, other than a chance to drop an extra quarter.
I was disappointed when you broke this story on McCain. Yes, it needs to be reported, but by who? And where? This is more fitting for Extra! or Hollywood Tonight or People magazine. The steaming, foul stools; floaters of the news business. They are perfect for this sort of information.
My esteemed editor has already touched on this issue. My point in this post is to thank you, NY Times, for the reaction you caused Rush Limbaugh to have.
I take so much joy from watching his stupid, screeching, swollen mass bobbing up and down in that poor chair of his, spasming at the unfortunate (for other GOP candidates) timing of the NY Times article. His hateful "eevil librul" rants get more and more venomous. I love it. I drink it up. It is my milkshake!
