Bait and Switch at the Washington Post

Last week it was the New York Times, now Jonathan "f*ck Brad DeLong" Weisman and Ellen Nakashima are mixing up two major parties

But conservative Democrats worried about Republicans' charges that the Democratic bill extended too many rights to suspected terrorists. "There is absolutely no reason our intelligence officials should have to consult government lawyers before listening in to terrorist communications with the likes of Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda and other foreign terror groups," said House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio).

The measure "extends our Constitution beyond American soil to our enemies who want to cut the heads off Americans," said Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.).


OK Jonathan and Ellen tell me. Are you aware that Boehner and Gohmert aren't Democrats (note the Rs) ? Do you think that writing for the Post gives you the authority to support a claim about what Democrats think by quoting Republicans ?
Do you think you would fit in better at "The Onion?".
