The smell of desperation wafts from the pages and pixels of the Washington Post. David Axelrod and his MFM minions at the Progressive Pravda had to go back some 50 years to fabricate a damaging story about Mitt Romney. I won't link it because I'm sure you've probably heard the spin by now and I don't want to give them the fourteen hits that they otherwise wouldn't get from here.
That dastardly Mitt allegedly pulled a prank on a fellow classmate for what I'm pretty sure was violating a school dress code by cutting his hair. Oh, and it's alleged that said classmate was "suspected" of being gay. How mean of Mitt. To a guy suspected of being gay. The Horror!
And you're supposed to think, "That homophobic bastard. I wouldn't vote for him if he was the last man on Earth" and change the channel to Ellen DeGeneres.
How terribly convenient.
This comes after VP Joe Biden's gaffe of telling the truth on one of last Sunday's talk shows where he said he was totally comfortable with gay marriage, Tuesday's vote in North Carolina defining marriage as only between a man and a woman 20-point victory, and Obama's earth-shaking announcement yesterday that he now has
I swear I did not know it was Gay Pride Week already in Washington. I should get out more, I guess.
Anyway, this story's already falling apart, as one of the fellows who was cited in the WaPo article now says he wasn't aware of the prank until this year when the paper contacted him about the story. (Plenty of links in that link to the Daily Caller.)
Now, the curious part of me is aroused. There's just a couple of things I'd like to know. First, how long has the Post been sitting on this story, because the timing seems, um, planned. Did David Axelrod control the release of this story? When was the forgetful classmate contacted and interviewed by the Post?
And lastly, when will the Post get around to doing some investigative work into Obama's high school years? Or his college years? What was his GPA? Where are his classmates?
When will the Post get around to investigating Obama's history in general?
Inquiring minds want to know.
