    He meant “authentically conservative”.Report

    Please, do you really expect Repubs to get a fair shake from the The Washington Post? It was a liberal rag when I was a kid in growing up in DC and it is still the same.Report

      Regardless of that, shouldn’t criticism of said post be something that a simple photo of the blog in question doesn’t refute?

      I mean come on. All Daniel Halper accomplished was making himself look stupid and lazy. He has every right to do so but it doesn’t seem advisable.Report

    I read Weigel everyday, as I did when he was at the Washington Independent, and if anything, I think he’s become more sympathetic to conservatives/Republicans than he was there. Not in a bad way, but in a “sympathetic but skeptical” kind of way. Which is an awkward way of saying that claims that David Weigel isn’t being fair to conservatives are asinine at best, and disingenuous at worst.Report

    What makes the point even more hilarious is that Weigel doesn’t just have the relatively clean and respectful of the right-wing blogging world but some of the nastier ones like gateway pundit and the other mccain.Report

    Maybe he’s running the other version of AssBlock, not the one that blocks soft core porn?Report

    It’s just as funny to see progressives bitch that he’s too sympathetic to conservatives. Jane Hamsher was doing just that on Twitter the other day. You just can’t please anybody, apparently.Report
