F- it! F- it! F- it!
Just had to repeat this latest from Digby:
The issue of Clark’s supposed flip-flop on the war is as Josh Marshall says part of the media’s apparent embrace of “simplism as the new integrity.” Clark made the mistake of speaking to political reporters in complex terms instead of bumper sticker slogans, which is akin to accidentally saying the F word in front of a group of 4 year olds --- they don’t understand what you’re saying but you know they’re going to embarrass you by repeating it.
This analogy ranks up their with Gene Lyon's labeling the Washington Press a bunch of Heathers.
