The Monday Morning News

Posted by on Mon, Apr 9, 2012 at 8:34 AM

Welcome back to Slog, y'all. Yesterday was Easter, and Seattle was hot, hot, hot.

Mike Wallace: Has also risen, in case you missed that.

Post-Mom Jeans: Hillary Clinton's reputation as a shades-wearing, Air Force-riding, globe-trotting bad ass has translated to popularity that "has never been higher."

Anti-Santorum Ad: As seen the bottom of the morning news, it gets pulled by Romney "as long as Rick Santorum is off the trail due to his daughter’s hospitalization."

Jesus, Fish! The trout in Washington are bigger this year.

Man Stabbed on "First Hill": SPD Blotter reports "officers responded to a report of a stabbing at a club in the 1100 Block of Pike Street."

Seattle Considers: An elementary school located downtown-ish.

Liberal Behemoth States: "National Republicans have begun to intervene in a handful of key Senate and House battlegrounds where state parties are in disarray, seeking to head off the possibility that local mismanagement could cost the party control of Congress... The Republican National Committee is going to set aside at least $10 to $15 million to aid states where there are competitive House and Senate races but minimal presidential action."

Who Lervs Obama: Swing independents and poor folks.

ANGRY, ANGRY MONKEEES FANS: They're soooooo aaaaaaangry about Adrian Ryan's column this week, which readers inform us is (a) "hideously negative and frankly a little sickening"; (b) "nasty without any point whatsoever"; (c) "really inappropriate"; and (d) "shit at a rag paper that obviously has no regard for the fact that they have just alienated a huge number of readers."

The Verboten Santorum Smear: Romney's just asked to pull this ad "ASAP":

So, assuming hell freezes over and Santorum somehow becomes president, how often is he going to have to put EVERYTHING aside to hospitalize his daughter?

I wonder if Santorum's ever considered the possibility his daughter's hospitalization is "God's call" to do something more productive than run for President so the pranksters and hate-filled ignorami have a "voice."

Oh whatever. I have a disabled child who has spent many days in hospitals. That fact doesn't offer me immunity from criticism nor does it make me less able to do my job.

@3 You're not in a high-ranking office, so...

@4 So....what?
"High-ranking office" is off limits to some people? Interesting. How do you come up with that criteria?

First Hill? Welcome to Seattle SPDblotter. Are you new here?

Which "club" do you think the men who had just met were visiting?

Is the photo at the top of the SPD blotter Jonah?

Death of a Great Farce

Listen, the abosolute consolidated corporate myth media are prattling about the Great Farce, Mike Wallace.

Odd, I recall all the stories spiked over the years at 60 Minutes, yet I don't recall anyone ever resigning because they couldn't, or refused, to get the real story out to the citizenry?

Had Wallace ever exhibited an ounce of integrity, he would have done so --- yet instead the American public watched various propaganda shows, and not the real deal which they too often spiked at CBS, and now the douchetards are prattling about Wallace, the Great Farce.

Of course he bred true, and of course his spawn is over at FoxFiction, the company which won two extremely expensive court cases stating that it was legal for FoxFiction to fictionalize the news, and legal for them to fire anyone who didn't agree with them.

Seemed to have worked for 60 Minutes, after all.....

@4, Rick Santorum is not in a high-ranking office, either. He's been unemployed since 2008. His only occupation is pretending to run for president.

@8 - Speaking of lack of integrity at CBS, let's not forget those faked National Guard memos on George W. Bush that sunk Dan Rather's career.

Yeah, that was embarrassing, @12. Also embarrassing: Shrub being allowed to play soldier with other people's kids.
