Damning With Faint Praise --or-- Consider The Source --or-- (Fox + Henhouse)2

Last month, I noted that Bush's nominee to head the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Michael E. Baroody, has for the past decade and a half worked as head lobbyist for NAMBLA NAM, the National Association of Manufacturers. At the time, I said that I hadn't seen much coverage from the MSM on the matter.

The NYT does have a story on the matter today. Here's what William Brock had to say about Baroody:

He has as much intellectual depth and integrity as anyone I've met in government over the decades.

Brock was a labor secretary under Reagan and, like Baroody, a "senior official" of the Republican National Committee, so he should know, right?
