Sprinkles in the Tank

Just when I thought Liz "Sprinkles" Sidoti and her enabling wank of an editor could not commit more crimes against the legacy of the Associated Press, comes this:

Before Ron Fournier returned to The Associated Press in March 2007, the veteran political reporter had another professional suitor: John McCain’s presidential campaign.

In October 2006, the McCain team approached Fournier about joining the fledgling operation, according to a source with knowledge of the talks. In the months that followed, said a source, Fournier spoke about the job possibility with members of McCain’s inner circle, including political aides Mark Salter, John Weaver and Rick Davis.

Salter, who remains a top McCain adviser, said in an e-mail to Politico that Fournier was considered for "a senior advisory role" in communications.

So it comes as no surprise that the AP’s coverage of Obama has been full of slanted pontificating as Fournier pushes not just straight reporting, but comments and analysis — so much of it amazingly unfair and non-analytical about Obama.

For, just this year alone Fournier has penned some real slimes against Obama, the first one coming to mind being this one:

Barack Obama better watch his step.

He’s bordering on arrogance.

The dictionary defines the word as an "offensive display of superiority or self-importance; overbearing pride." Obama may not be offensive or overbearing, but he can be a bit too cocky for his own good.

Fournier demonstrating he knows how to put an "uppity negro" in his place. For him to generate this opinion with no evidence seems somehow — oh I don’t know — presumptuous?

And now we know there is more than just his own offensive agenda in place, there’s water to be carried — "hot soup" to be prepared.

He should resign or be made to "resign".


So he can get that blessed McCain job and operate in the open.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
