Political Journalism At Its Finest

It is fucken hilarious that blue-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan and his grim rage-drunk rich asshole running-mate got fucken *destroyed* in Ryan’s own goddamn motherfucken home town.

But what’s even more interesting to me is the following sentence from the LA Times article:

Ryan, a rising Republican star despite last week’s vice presidential loss, frequently invoked his Janesville roots during the campaign.

How has the author of this piece determined that Ryan is “a rising Republican star despite last week’s vice presidential loss”? Has the author measured the trajectory of Ryan’s Republican star both before and in the one week after the election and determined that the trajectory continues to rise? And if so, how does the author know it is “despite” the electoral trouncing? Maybe it is because of the electoral trouncing.

What the fucke ever happened to journalists questioning assumptions, instead of just credulously repeating them?

    “rising republican star”?? Really? hahahhahaaahaha!!! It seems like an oxymoron. But there was a democrat who ran for Ryan’s House seat and also lost. that fuckwad (Ryan) looks too much like Eddie Munster to be taken seriously anyway.

    Meanwhile, the Republican Party’s Ministry of Truth has been hard at work turning Romney into an unperson. I suspect that, within a month or two, The Party will be insisting that Ryan was the presidential candidate, and had always been the presidential candidate.

    Journalism died the exact moment HW came out his back door in Kennebunkport and declared Clarence Thomas the best qualified available nominee and the press didn’t peep. That. Exact. Moment.
