Can I Get A, "Whoop, Whoop?"

Now that Murdoch's New York Post has had to swallow their overweening pride and issue a retraction of the Michele Obama dining on room service lobster story, when do you suppose we'll see a recognition by the local bloggers who've blown that story up?

I took, "Never" in the pool. When do you think they'll so much as acknowledge that they were telling tales?

I'll offer those bloggers a little biscuit to chew on while they think about their sins. Righty bloggers, feel free to check out the veracity of this.

The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to
clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family
since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the
accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue
in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman
Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

Dude, my wardrobe needs a lift! Maybe I should jostle for the next VP spot.

Come on - what do you expect? Both sided throw money around like water.

I'm just worried about Joe, the unlicensed tax-evader. He sends his $35 contribution to the RNC to combat terrorists and winds up buying a set of cuff buttons for the K-Mart candidate.

Fred doesn't strike me as the type to admit when he's wrong.

"Admit" or "Recognize?"

No he didn't. He should have left the original post up and then linked to it from the retraction post. That would have been more ethical than removing the evidence.
