Sweet, sweet irony

In a shocking piece that supports the "vast Right wing conspiracy" assertion that the media is full of liberals, something really just needed to be pointed out:

"Probably there should be a rule against it," said New Yorker writer Mark Singer, who wrote the magazine's profile of Howard Dean during the 2004 campaign, then gave $250 to America Coming Together and its get-out-the-vote campaign to defeat President Bush. "But there's a rule against murder. If someone had murdered Hitler — a journalist interviewing him had murdered him — the world would be a better place. I only feel good, as a citizen, about getting rid of George Bush, who has been the most destructive president in my lifetime. I certainly don't regret it."
Don't you see? The media really is fair!

Isn't it simply wonderful that in an article about moonbat journalists they actually quote a guy who promptly compares Bush to Hitler? And then rationalizes murder and assassination by comparing them to political donations?

We're taking news from these people? (We as America; I don't of course. I'm immune to their powers.)
"If giving money to a politician prejudiced my ability to think and write honestly, I wouldn't do it. Fortunately, it doesn't."
Phew. Good thing!
