NY Times: So What, It's Only Plagiarism, We Have Other Things to Worry About

These chumps just keep stepping in it.

Not only have them been busted plagiarizing, their approval rating has bottomed out, and they now trail President Bush in approval ratings.

A majority of Americans condemns The New York Times for publishing a story suggesting John McCain had an affair with a female lobbyist eight years ago, according to two polls.

The Rasmussen poll showed two-thirds of those familiar with the story believed it was an unfair attempt to smear the presumptive Republican presidential nominee; 22 percent backed the Times.

Eighty-five percent of Republicans thought the story was unfit to print, while 69 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats also cried foul.

In a survey by the Pew Research Center, 57 percent said it was wrong for the Times to publish the story; only one in three defended it.
Just last week, they were gleeful over President Bush's low approval rating. Of course, they used some polling outfit they claim is well-known, but a more reliable pollster recently has the president at 35%.

Remarkably, today they compound their misery by rehashing an already discredited theory about John McCain's citizenship.

Are they really this out of touch? Apparently so.
Mr. McCain’s likely nomination as the Republican candidate for president and the happenstance of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are reviving a musty debate that has surfaced periodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a “natural-born citizen” can hold the nation’s highest office.
Plenty of ridicule already for this one.
