Politico’s Blake Hounshell distracts after Dem senator accused of plagiarism

http://twitter.com/#!/AceofSpadesHQ/status/492051156114624512

The New York Times has alleged that Montana Democrat Sen. John Walsh plagiarized “at least” one-quarter of a 2007 thesis he turned in to earn a master’s degree from the United States Army War College. Serious allegations, right?

For Blake Hounshell of Politico, the first order of business was to provide spin and maybe a talking point for his MSM colleagues and Walsh’s fellow Dems:

It must just be sheer instinct.

‘Ugh’: Dems’ proposed Obama bumper sticker sparks facepalms, Photoshops

http://twitter.com/#!/whads/status/469861897060483072

Ah, but alas. In order to be embarrassed, one must be capable of feeling shame. And the Democrats have no shame.

Check out this bumper sticker they’re proposing:

Ouch! It’s true, though.

At this point, Dems, there’s no need to bother. Conservatives are way better at this.

Update:

The Democrats have doubled down. Not like bosses, though. More like dipsticks:

How Halloween has changed in DC, in one chart

How Halloween has changed in DC, in one chart

If you’ve lived in D.C. for a long while, enough to notice trends in trick or treaters, you may have sensed something shift in the past ten years, and I don’t just mean the serious oversupply of Iron Man costumes. Neighborhoods that used to be full of kids are now full of 20-something yuppies, while the upper reaches of Northwest have become more overrun with yoots than ever.
