John Hinderaker of Powerline has written quite possibly the Laziest Blog Post To Ever Grace The Intertubes. I won't link directly to them, but you can get there through Sadly, No! (who get the energy dome tip); enjoy TinTin's "shorter" version, as well. But here's the whole thing; every lazy, stupid, ridiculous word.
At least I think it's intended to be a news story. It popped up on Yahoo News a while ago, which I assume means that many thousands of people will read it. It's written for McClatchy by two reporters--I guess they are supposed to be reporters--named Jonathan S. Landay and Warren P. Strobel and is titled "Cheney's speech contained omissions, misstatements." The article is basically a compendium of DNC/Daily Kos talking points from 2003 to the present. It is full of falsehoods, long-discredited canards, and misleading statements. I'm going to bed and don't have time to deconstruct it, but if you read it no doubt you will be able to make corrections as you go along. It is one of those "news stories" that is intended solely for the ignorant. If we had comments, maybe we could let our readers tear this piece of nonsense apart line by line while we sleep. Perhaps someday.
I seriously can't stop laughing. That bit at the end about the comments just kills me. I can't believe anyone takes these collective heads of knuckle the slightest bit seriously.

(You can rant about Cheney's speech in Melissa's thread here.)
