Lacking A Stitch Of Honor

I don't know how journalists can even look at themselves in the mirror. Patterico examines the outright spinning and lying the NYT is doing regarding the Kerry affair. They only get to what he said in Pasadena in paragraph 18 of their "story", and, in "quoting" him, they lie. Completely. I loathe the MSM.

BTW, I think it's funny how the running dog traitors of the left think that what Kerry did is no big deal because the troops weren't really his target, really. Apropos of that is this Corner entry I saw yesterday:

Bush's Response [Jonah Goldberg]

From a reader:

I only hope that Mr. Bush will put out a gracious press release accepting Mr. Kerry's word that it was not a slight against the military, but only a personal insult to the President of the United States.

Along the same lines is this comment to the Patterico piece:

One more time: it doesn’t matter if the “joke” was on Bush or on the troops. Either way, it was a dishonorable insult directed at our Commander-in-Chief while we have troops fighting and dying overseas, and it denigrated their efforts and sacrifices by saying they/we/whomever are “stuck” in Iraq. Yes, it’s the lame “quagmire” gambit all over again, and is doubly offensive coming from one that voted to authorize the action in the first place.

Even if the line had been delivered perfectly (which you would naturally expect it to have been, what with Mr. Kerry being so smart and well-spoken and all), it was an insult to our President, everyone that voted for him, and our troops that are over there supporting our mission. I’m sick and tired of being gratuitously insulted by that pompous ass, and I think it’s about time he got his due. He’s gotten away with this crap for too many decades now.
