Wanker of the day: Stephen Taylor.
Shorter Stephen: "I can't technically, per se, as it were, you know, literally, come up with anything she did that was illegal, immoral or unethical. But I'm going to whine like a little girl about it, anyway."
A couple pieces of advice, Steve, so you can avoid making this much of a dickwad of yourself next time. First, when your party decides to treat the media like crap, you really don't have the moral foundation to start bitching when they make that extra effort to see what you're up to, know what I'm sayin'?
And, second, it's kind of amusing to watch you carp and moan about a reporter digging up political dirt about a conference at which one of the guest speakers discussed (you guessed it) digging up political dirt. The irony there kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it?
AFTERSNARK: Maybe it's just me but is anyone else amused by the thought of members of a political party that ran on a platform of openness and transparency now whinging on that "Civitas is a private gathering of conservatives to discuss politics and ideas without the inhibitive hind-thought of media scrutiny." [Emphasis gleefully added.]
Hey, Steve ... you folks keep using that word "transparency." I do not think it means what you think it means.
