This article popped up in the Herald this morning, and my Bullshit Detector went off immediately. I figure it’s gotta be a GOP press release masquerading as a legit news story and the political editor slipped it in just to fill space. But no, it’s by Steven Thomma, who is one of Knight-Ridder’s political writers. The article also reads like it is stale – about three months old. Oh, well, anything to kill a few inches between the ads, I guess.
