Monday Smackdown: Dana Milbank of the Washington Post

Live from the Journamalists Self-Made Gehenna: Yes, reading Dana Milbank of the Washington Post is like drinking bilge water. Why do you ask?

The smackdown is brought by: Duncan Black**: I Don't Think the Potty Mouth is the Problem: "What has Mr. 'Mad Bitch Beer' incensed is that the Donald says bad words...

...Of course Dana says bad words. Journalists swear. Politicians swear all the time. They've done it in front of me even when I didn't know them. Journalists know that politicians swear. Sure most are a bit less likely to do it in front of a camera, but so what? I'd prefer their public personas more accurately reflect their private ones. It's ridiculous when Official Washington gets up on their high horses about decorum, especially when most of them don't exactly have the Queen's manners themselves.
