Our Sad, Bad Press

In a nation with rational politics, Murray Waas' prize-winning expose of former Arkansas Governor and now Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee's "direct personal lobbying" for parole and release of serial rapist Wayne Dumond would be enough to disqualify him for any public office, anywhere. Why? Because just four years after Huckabee's extraordinary efforts brought about the man's release from prison, he raped and killed again.

But that's not all. In a nation with a rational press, New York Times columnist Gail Collins would be unemployed after the mash note to Mike Huckabee she wrote earlier this week. Why? Because Hullabaloo's Tristero is a far better writer and researcher, has more integrity, and caught Collins dead-to-rights covering up for Huckabee.
