    The irony just doesn't let up!

    I guess by "family values" he means other peoples' families.

    Kind of like W. Bush opposing nation building. It turns out, he was for building every nation except his own.

    Interesting that "TPM" makes sure to mention that this guy Walsh is a Republican, but when "reporting" about Jon Corzine, disgraced former Senator and disgraced former Governor of New Jersey, the word "Democrat" doesn't appear in the article.

    " ... Corzine, 64, had run Goldman Sachs & Co from 1994 to early 1999, and was later a U.S. senator from New Jersey and governor of that state... "


    Your idea of fair and balanced?

    Not that this is unusual. Elliot Spitzer also became a man without a party once word got out about what he was doing. All the networks reported on it, no one mentioned that he's a Democrat... well, Fox probably made a note of it.

    I don't think anyone denies that Talking Points Memo is a liberal publication, themselves included.

    But I'm willing to bet you actually think Fox News is "fair and balanced"

    I'd also point out that everyone knows who Corzine is.

    But I don't see any denials of the hypocrisy here. Just a counterattack against the source. Fairly typical I'm afraid.
