Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A writer for the WaPo who isn't a republican schill ? The "paper's most reliable critic of the Bush administration" !! You mean there are two ?? Ah, you say a lonely voice, so no.

Which is why I thought he was a republican, I simply could not imagine any other creature being tolerated there.

But it does not stop my wider critique. I imagine the media will finally wake up from their acquiescent torpor sometime in mid-January 2009 and immediately start asking awkward questions of the new administration like it has any right whatsoever to the role of holding the administration to account. And I find it a little sickening to see all those signs of awakening and trying to pretend they've been at it all along. They weren't, they collaborated. With McCarthy it was from fear and yet some still spoke out. But this time it was from commitment and all other voices were stilled.
