The NYT proves that with God all things are possible…

…even doing an expose on a front running democrat:

what is striking about Mr. Blumenthal’s record is the contrast between the many steps he took that allowed him to avoid Vietnam, and the misleading way he often speaks about that period of his life now, especially when he is speaking at veterans’ ceremonies or other patriotic events.

Sometimes his remarks have been plainly untrue, as in his speech to the group in Norwalk. At other times, he has used more ambiguous language, but the impression left on audiences can be similar.

Via this tweet by Joe Scarborough. Today Mika is talking about how he has done good work and has wanted this for years and how shocked she is about the story.

HotAir however is shocked that the NYT actually broke the story.

Credit where credit is due: No doubt it pained the NYT to drop a bomb on one of the few surefire Democratic winners this November, but they dropped it anyway.

Smitty is having none of it:

Why are we congratulating the NYT for doing the right thing? Should we as well give Blumenthal a medal for not firing a shot in a theater to which he apparently never deployed?

Smitty must still have scripture on his mind after our discussion yesterday and is remembering Luke 17:10b.

Bob Woodward is going on about what a good job and how relevant the NYT is. I think it really speaks volumes about the times that we expect so little from them that we cheer when they do their job.

Scarborough is talking about his prospects for recovering from this. They are going on about how he should handle it and how he could get though it. Sam Stein in particularly give him some defense but everyone is overlooking something important: His opponent’s real military record

Closing thought, how far has the times fallen for us to be so excited by them doing their job?

Update: Mika is really pained looking at these quotes as he knows and likes the guy and came out and said so. Her reaction and the reality of it has to be seen. She sang the praises of his record, but she is having none of the spin. It’s one of the reasons I like her, she is too honest to try to spin this any other way. Sam Stein however is spinning like mad comparing Cheney to Blumenthal. To my knowledge Cheney never misrepresented his record. On the advice of my wife I will not describe him with the adjective he deserves.

Update 2: Ruby Slippers talks about the implosion

    Blumenthal turned out to be just another D***!
