Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps? (Yet Another Washington Post Edition)

Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, a member of the board of Working for Us, says:

This is a potent alliance, and one that will have real muscle as we look to target not "conservative" Democrats, but Democrats who are out of step with their districts (a key and important distinction). This is no lame-brained Club for Growth clone -- an operation obsessed with ideological purity without regard to electoral realities...

And Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post says:

They (Better) Work For Us - The Fix: Working For Us... carries the backing of people like Steve Rosenthal, a past political director at the AFL-CIO, Tom Matzzie, the Washington director of Moveon.org and -- most intriguingly -- blogger icon Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, founder of the influential Daily Kos Web site. Working For Us is modeled explicitly on the Club For Growth, an independent organization that over the last several election cycles has transformed itself into an electoral force by endorsing fiscally conservative candidates in contested primaries and then pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into districts to help those candidates win. (I've written extensively about the Club both in the space and elsewhere)...

Ummm... If a board member says that it's "no lame-brained Club for Growth clone" isn't that worth mentioning?
