Maybe the new owner will do a study on the value of the WaPo writers, finding out how much each WaPo writer is worth, in dollars and cents, to the paper, the same way you calculate the value of a book at amazon.com, in profit and loss terms. My guess is that Milbank's actual value in those terms is in the negative. He's just window dressing. Controversy doesn't sell that many newspapers or online hits. It just annoys people. Newspapers are dying for reasons. One of them is people like Milbank. WaPo wants to be known as a "paper of record". With writers like Milbank, it is a "joke paper". If it is serious about being a newspaper of record, it has to earn that approbation by employing real journalists and competent writers, neither of which describes Milbank.

There's a little known, all powerful, legal remedy reserved largely only for The People to remove usurpers like 0bama. It's called a Writ of Quo Warranto. But NOBODY has the courage to do it. Not even famous loudmouth Mark Levin. It would solve the problem lickity-split. But it requires extraordinary courage. So it won't happen.
Then all Blacks have to be racists if you follow Mr. Neblett's logic . . . Oh wait! I forgot. It's "impossible" for Black "folks" to be racists. Hahahahaha Touré's such a putz. (Now there's a nice Yiddish insult. Good, since he hates Jews too. Add Anti-Semite to the list of perjoratives against him.}
Just for yuks, let's deconstruct Mr. Neblett's name. Touré (which is normally a last name) Neblett (a surname he refuses to use) lives in the village of MSNBC, a village of idiots, thereby making Mr. Neblett one of the village idiots. By pretentiously using the French accent aigu over the letter e, in Touré, let's us know his name is pronounced "tur-ray", and NOT "tour", (not turd either) which would be so plebian, so common, so NOT Touré, which sounds coultured and elitist. What do YOU say, Mr. Neblett? I say you are insufferably self-important which is what the English are wont to call the French. Ah - the perfect fit for a pretentious, spoiled, self-absorbed, little, rich kid.

Pesky little thing, isn't it? No wonder Bush and Obama hate it.
At one [naive] point in my adulthood, I actually thought liberals/progs and dems were being very clever in their strategies, using such lies as these, smearing conservatives, then I grew to understand that they are not clever at all. They are just insane. They really believe the lies they spout.
Do you get out much?
