What I learned from the Village Stenographers

I don’t claim special insight into the human condition, but I think I am somewhat informed. But I admit I did learn something new from Politico yesterday.

In an article entitled “High-profile Catholic Dems bail on Obama on contraceptives” comes this quote:

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), an Orthodox Jew, tweeted Wednesday that he opposed the administration’s mandate.

So Orthodox Jews, are they part of the Franciscans, Dominicans, Benedictines, Carmelites, or some new branch of Catholicism?

The other notable aspect of the article is its slavish devotion only to the words of D.C. insiders exclusively — while simultaneously having this graphic at the top of the article — which is never, ever, discussed.

 

It is truly the ultimate Politico article…ignoring the truth before its eyes to create a narrative of insider fiction.

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 .
