New York Times Plays the Koch Card, Reporting Democrat ObamaCare Panic

‘Idiocy Is Not a Zero-Sum Game’

Alabama crazy-blogger Roger Shuler. The title quote is Popehat blogger Ken White’s assessment of the Roger Shuler case as quoted in the New York Times: For over six years, Roger Shuler has hounded figures of the state legal and political establishment on his blog, Legal Schnauzer, a hothouse of furious but often fuzzily sourced allegations […]
