11 Freakin' Writers!

From the great Mark Steyn:

Wow. That's ten "AP writers" plus Calvin Woodward, the AP writer whose twinkling pen honed the above contributions into the turgid sludge of the actual report. That's 11 writers for a 695-word report. What on? Obamacare? The Iranian nuke program? The upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

No, the Associated Press assigned 11 writers to "fact-check" Sarah Palin's new book, and in return the 11 fact-checkers triumphantly unearthed six errors. That's 1.8333333 writers for each error.

The economy is in the toilet. Over 17% unemployment. Obama is bowing to world leaders. Iran is shooting us the finger. Congress is trying to destroy our wonderful health care system. And the AP thinks its more important to sick 11 writers on a private citizen's literary endeavor?

I am speechless. Its almost comical how crazy and unhinged the left is when it comes to Sarah. Heck, I may just order a few more copies simply to give as gifts. The sales numbers for her book are already off the charts and it has not even shipped.

Oh, here is another fun nugget:

HuffPo Ponders Separate NY Times Bestsellers List for 'Conservative Blockbusters' - Liberals never win in the arena of ideas, so therefore they want to change the rules. Typical. They fail to realize that this is still, largely, a Conservative nation.
