I wonder if we can arrange for that WaPo civil war to be fought with automatic weapons. I'll chip in for some ammo.

Note to law enforcement authorities - the above statement was made solely for the amusement of the users of this forum and is strictly a satirical comment, made while satirical statements are still legal under the rapidly shrinking right of free speech.

I have been reading Jennifer Rubin's blog posts for over a year.

She makes more sense these days than many Republicans.

Obama cuts defense to the bone, and then some

"The newsroom, meanwhile, has bemoaned that the mixture of slant and partisanship has dented the newspaper's reputation for fairness and neutrality, a claim the opinionated bloggers reject."

"Dented the newspaper's reputation for fariness and neutrality."

cited a blog post of her's

"Her's"? Ugh.

If the columnist were a man, would the writer have written "hi's"? English is a dying language. Not sure what's replacing it.

NOBODY at the Washington Post is a reporter.

They are all editorial writers.

Weather and the baseball standings are the only facts published in the Post.

And Dilbert.
