    New York Times writer Helene Cooper must be posting her articles from an alternate reality. It is the only conclusion that one can reach when reading her reaction to the announcement today that Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was swapped last year for five Guantanamo prisoners, will be charged with desertion. So what is a major concern for Cooper? It is her speculation as to whether Bergdahl can still get an honorable discharge if found guilty and if not, how that will affect his job opportunities. I kid you not. Try not to slap your head too hard in exasperation while...

    HELENE COOPER, NEW YORK TIMES: "I really do think at the end of the day, Larry, what you describe sounds like sort of the White House negotiating right now -- easily saying, 'Yeah, we can go over the fiscal cliff.' But at the end of the day, this is a president, he would have to own it. He may not think he has to own the recession; but if we go over that, he is going to have to own that. And that's something he definitely knows."
