More Popcorn, Please

Remember yesterday, when I pointed you to TBogg's account of Erick Erickson's angry wadding up of his Cheetos bag?

Now another member of the Red State Trike Force has piled on. The post title is "Cleansing the Party." It was written by someone named James Richardson, who claims, "I served as the Republican National Committee’s Online Communications Manager for the 2008 Presidential cycle." Among other delights to be found in his screed, he links to a story on to support a claim of "Governor Palin’s soaring popularity with base supporters." The article mentions Palin exactly nowhere. You can't make this stuff up.

And David Frum has fired back. Among other things, he complains about politicos, their word games, how they dance around the truth, and how they resort, finally, to attacking the reporter and questioning motives. Srsly.

It's 10° outside right now, but I'm feeling all warm inside.

Base has more than one meaning. Just saying.
