The Idaho Statesman was named a 2008 Pulitzer Prize finalist in Breaking News Reporting for its coverage of the Larry Craig scandal that began with his arrest and guilty plea in an airport restroom last August. This is the first time the Statesman has been a finalist in its 141-year history. The McClatchy Co. has won more than 50 of journalism's most prestigious prize.

The Washington Post won the 2008 Breaking News Reporting award for its coverage of the shooting rampage at Virginia Tech. The New York Times was also named a Pulitzer finalist in this category.

The Pulitzers have been awarded since 1917 to reward excellent journalism. Prizes are also awarded to novelists, poets, historians, biographers and more.

The main question is: is the "Mistakesman" potentially being awarded for a "drive by"? (Since it was pretty obvious that Craig wasn't going to get out of office on his shoddy immigration record alone?)

I don't know. They outed a closeted gay. Used to be if you did that the other homos would be mad at you. Now you get awards for it! Who knew. Just another way the Democrats are total hypocrits.

Nah, I think you pretty much covered it. Although to put it another way, Dims expect those in the GOP (at least those who at least show a modicum of conservative leanings) to be Jesus Christ. When they fall short of this, the left throws a temper tantrum.

What is the actual award - a pair of Golden Tap-Shoes?
