Village Voice

Unintentional comedy at its best. My favorite line comes in the first paragraph of the fourth section, where the author cites an example of the evil grubby Republicans who "allegedly" shredded voter registration forms in Arizona. Ha! That's the best he could come up with, an "alleged" shredding of voter registration forms? What a joke. My other favorite line comes when Perlstein says John Kerry "mildly suggested" that Allawi's speech with Bush attempted to put the best face on Iraq war. Really? Does calling the prime minister a "puppet," as Joe Lockhart did, count as a mild suggestion? I'm not really sure why this is on Real Clear Politics, since it's not so much a reasoned argument (something Kinsley, Slate, TNR, etc. would advance) so much as a hit piece on Bush.

If you're looking for a fun read, then give this a go. If you've been looking for someone who thinks the media is overly conservative, then this article is for you.
