The Washington Post sinks lower

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Currently featured on the front page of the Washington Post's web site:

Richard Cohen's frightened plea for more torture and fewer civil liberties

Dana Milbank's inane column about the purported sexiness of the Budget Director

Ramesh Ponnuru's unsubstantiated claim that President Obama "arguably implied" that voters are "stupid."

An "On Faith" guest post by the American Life League's communications director, who describes feminists as "pro-abortion."

Howard Kurtz's daily exploration of the love lives of the powerful and famous.

And that's just what's linked on the front page -- it doesn't include sports columnist Sally Jenkins' reference to "pro-abortion" feminists, who she mocks as "the 'Dwindling Organizations of Ladies in Lockstep,' otherwise known as DOLL" while criticizing "the group-think, elitism and condescension of the 'National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time'" and "'The National Organization for Women Who Only Think Like Us.'" Jenkins concludes with a transparently silly attack on those who criticize CBS's decision to run an anti-choice Super Bowl ad while rejecting an ad for a gay dating service: "CBS owns its broadcast and can run whatever advertising it wants." Yeah ... So? That does not immunize them from criticism for the decisions they make.

I'm really starting to worry there's something in the water over at the Washington Post bulding.
