WaPo Pundit Re-Interprets a Classic Rather-gate Psuedo Aphorism to Defend The One

Arts & Ammo » False But Justified

Four years ago, mainstream media peddled their bias with Dan Rather’s famous phrase, “fake but accurate.” This year we are treated to its corollary: False but justified.

Sebastian Mallaby couples the following two points in his Washington Post column:

1. The Obama campaign is falsely blaming the financial mess on McCain-style deregulation.

2. It is “mostly justified” that Obama reap the benefit.

It is justified because the author says Obama is “more thoughtful on the economy.” That’s it.

Being more thoughtful does not mean being right, but being right is apparently not as important as being thoughtful. It comforts liberals to envision people thinking hard about difficult questions, even when they come up with the wrong answer. Consequences be damned.

Do these mooks really, honestly believe the general public can’t notice how far over, to the point their ears are brushing their Achilles’ heels, they are willing to bend over in defence of the Chosen?
