ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Rather finally admits the problem, only he doesn't see it as a problem...

H/T to the good Captain, Rather has a recent statement on the Memo fiasco and how its really no big deal because they only have an obligation to report something that "smells dangerous":

The press is a watchdog. Not an attack dog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can't be right all the time. He doesn't bark only when he sees or smells something that's dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't you get rid of a watchdog that barks when there's nothing in the yard? Might instead turn to a more modern form of alarm?
Oh wait that's what's happening....

Your Co-Conspirator,
ARC: Brian
