The next time Kathleen Parker chooses to write a column such as this, she could really save herself a lot of time. For instance, she simply could have written, “Lawrence O’Donnell says the Romneys treat their Olympic horse as a business rather than a health expense. A bunch of other people I don’t like, whom I will not bother to name, made some horrible comments that I didn’t like one bit. You will just have to trust me that they were really bad, because again, I won’t be quoting any of them here. Oh, and it’s better to use horses therapeutically than as circus or zoo meat.”
The column is an attempt, as far as I can tell, is to paint some people on the left as envious to the point of wanting to derail their success. Yet she gives no specific examples and makes no verifiable or “debunkable” statements. To be clear, there very well may be many people who feel this way, but you can’t show it from anything she has written.
Does the Washington Post no standards anymore?
