Further Down The Spiral: Next Week, How the Font Choice is Proof of Liberal Bias

Gateway Pundit, never a well-hinged individual to begin with, long a card-carrying member of the Cult of the COLB, is now sadly (and by sadly, I mean hilariously) reduced to complaining about Wikipedians deleting mentions of supposed "ineligibility" from the Barack Obama page.

Does this mean Obama is JUST LIKE STALIN???

You have to ask?

(h/t: Instapundit. Yeah, I went there, looking at another classic case of the Ole Perfesser approvingly linking to other wingnuts more willing to carry his water.)

[Added] And following along with my small-type thoughts, here's David Weigel:

UPDATE: See, here’s why I post about this stuff. Two hours after my write-up, Instapundit links Gateway Pundit with the headline “Still airbrushing Obama’s Wikipedia page.” And thus, a false story from a conspiracy web site gets promoted by a mainstream author and law professor.

[Added] Terry Krepel of ConWebWatch fame adds some interesting wrinkles to the story of this nontroversy. He focuses on WingNutDaily's "reporting," which was Gateway P's source for his blog post.
