Look, I don't like the kid either

...but anyone with a brain the size of a monkey's nut can see that the column which Steve Gilliard and Jane Hamsher are so hot about is meant to be SATIRE (or at least sarcastic), and thus two normally sharp and incisive liberal commentators have let themselves fall into Malkinland. Y'all should just hush before you make yourselves look worse. There's plenty of ammo against the WaPo's new "conservative blogger" -- but that column is not one of them. Period. And while I'm at it, I find the left's outrage over the Post's hiring of this wee clown unreasonable and wrongly aimed: you can attack the kid over what he's written (dissing Coretta Scott King, after her funeral, as being a "communist"), and you can rag on the Post for claiming that hiring this kid brings "balance", but there's a common thread among the bloggers and commentaers that I find amusing: that the Post is degrading itself by running a convervative blogger. No, it isn't; it may be degrading itself by running an idiotic conservative blogger, like the L.A. Times and the Doughy Pantload, but this tortured howling about how low the paper has sunk, coming from people who never had any use for the Post in the first place, is ridiculous. It's not doing the re-emerging left any good in the eyes of America, and it's not doing the liberal blogosphere any good, either. Simmer the fuck down.

And, if what I've seen today is accurate, an idiotic conservative who plagerizes. Just a guess here, but something tells me Domenech's time at the Post is rapidly coming to an end...
