While more discouraging
(if not downright frightening
) economic news
continues to roll in, making the Obama administration look increasingly incompetent, and while a federal judge unilaterally declares we've been misinterpreting the Constitution
for nearly 225 years, and while a sitting Congressman is being investigated for ethics violations boogies down

Will its offbeat candidates hurt GOP?
The advocates masquerading as objective journalists at Politico are aggressively trying to change the narrative and make the 2010 election cycle about the character of individuals in the GOP and not the track record of the Obama administration. Although the Democratic Party itself nominated Alvin Greene
, undoubtedly the offest-beat candidate in this election cycle, elected screwballs such as Alan Grayson

like Rangel and Maxine Waters, Politico plays the politics of personal destruction with the current Republican nominees. All in a day's work for the Democrat-Media Complex!

, so there aren't any shocking revelations here. But there are unintended consequences for this kind of advocacy reportage. By painting targets on the backs of these Republicans, Politico has painted another on itself.
Because while the JournoListas at Politico have erected an impressive new-media infrastructure, with their militant left-bias and eagerness to slime conservatives, they are proving to be nothing more than the old media with better graphics.
And you know what's happening
to the Old Media.
