It must be snowing in hell

Because the Washington Post just vindicated GW at the expense of the Plame-Wilson liars. 

A snippet:

In fact, “Fair Game,” based on books by Mr. Wilson and his wife, is full of distortions – not to mention outright inventions.

Not quite earth shattering, right.  They’re liars.  No biggie.  (Except it is in the liberal world).

But this:

“Fair Game” also resells the couple’s story that Ms. Plame’s exposure was the result of a White House conspiracy. A lengthy and wasteful investigation by a special prosecutor found no such conspiracy – but it did confirm that the prime source of a newspaper column identifying Ms. Plame was a State Department official, not a White House political operative.

Again, no bombshell.  Restatement of fact–something the WaPo really isn’t in the business of doing.

And then there’s this:

But the film’s reception illustrates a more troubling trend of political debates in Washington in which established facts are willfully ignored. Mr. Wilson claimed that he had proved that Mr. Bush deliberately twisted the truth about Iraq, and he was eagerly embraced by those who insist the former president lied the country into a war. Though it was long ago established that Mr. Wilson himself was not telling the truth – not about his mission to Niger and not about his wife – the myth endures. We’ll join the former president in hoping that future historians get it right.

Mouth agape.  WaPo editorial board joining GW in “hoping that future historians get it right”?!

No snow forecast.  But you never know, right?

    In Washington. By Liberals?

    The universe just shifted. Is this the Twilight Zone?

    • Seriously. I couldn’t believe I was reading what … I was reading. It felt like an Onion moment. But I pinched myself and the header still said “WaPo.”

      Maybe there’s hope yet.
