Just take your soiled slacks and retire already

Ron Fournier of the National Journal manages to be more pathetic than Alex Jones over the Boston bombing.

Yeah, it killed like 1/1500th of the people 9/11 did and I have a sneaky suspicion it will not lead to two or even one crippling wars that will kill six-figures of human beings and cost trillions.

But other than that, so much worse Ron -- you are so right.  Good job, good effort.

But then, ol' Ron has the true soul of a modern newsperson.

Karl Rove exhanged e-mails about Pat Tillman with Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier, under the subject line "H-E-R-O." In response to Mr. Fournier's e-mail, Mr. Rove asked, "How does our country continue to produce men and women like this," to which Mr. Fournier replied, "The Lord creates men and women like this all over the world. But only the great and free countries allow them to flourish. Keep up the fight."
There's always another ass to kiss inappropriately whether the pants are wet or not, isn't there Ron?

Fournier’s a spring chicken of 50. Judging by Woodward’s example, Ron will be pushing the Republican agenda, and yelling at clouds and the kids on his lawn for another generation

Could have come from a libretto of a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta. Very nice.

Never trust people in the public eye named Ron. Fournier ... Ziegler ... Reagan ... Paul ...

But only the great and free countries allow them to flourish.

The American definition of "flourish" now includes "being shot dead by friendly fire at age 27".

Is Fournier allowed to cut his own meat?

Sounds as if Fournier is trying out for the Art Bell of the Beltway award.

If you're actually outdoing Alex Jones in the paranoia department, you just might win.
