Column of the year

It's early, but so far Eric Alterman has written the best column of 2006. Here it is, in the February 20 Nation magazine. As he points out, the press has lost all interest in Bush's Iraq deceptions (e.g. the Niger-uranium story ,the Saddam-9-11 "connection",etc..)

The big-name pundits such as David Broder have declared the war scandals old news. As Alterman points out, the foul fiends of the liberal press completely ignored the damning revelations of the Downing Street memo. They just can't reach the depths of anger they previously attained during the Monica Lewinsky "scandal". It seems to me that lying about war ought to be considered, at the very least, as important as lying about a consensual affair.
