Columnists Who Met with White House Tuesday Write Same Thing Wednesday
Nice catch by The Weekly Standard's John McCormack:
UPDATE: Add Salon's Joan Walsh to the list.
Just 18 hours earlier, The Washington Post's Ezra Klein and Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo were spotted headed into the West Wing with a gaggle of other left-wing columnists.
It should be noted that Klein doesn’t specifically call for Lois Lerner to be fired, but both are calling for "firings" at the IRS within a half-hour of one another.
It should also be noted, though, that six days ago Klein wrote a column claiming Obama's scandals, including the IRS scandal, were "falling apart."
Just a few moments ago on MSNBC, Klein lashed out at civil service protections that won't allow for IRS employees to be fired. It looks as though the White House might be using these guys as a way to convince the public that firings are the answer. A few heads on pig poles and we can call the scandal over.
