for the record ...

... can I just say that I'm bewildered by the firestorm of controversy surrounding Ben Domenech's hiring by the WaPo? Ben Who? Did I spell his name right? Who cares? Do we really need to prove to the MSM that we can be every bit as whiny and irritating as the right just so they'll give us a fair shake?

If he's as unqualified as everyone says, let him write some crap and then gleefully deconstruct it. If anything, his appointment should be a boon to lefty bloggers everywhere, especially since Friedman, Brooks, and Tierney are no longer around.

Update: And what a boon this is turning out to be. Apparently in his pre-WaPo writing career, Ben had a penchant for appropriating other people's work and calling it his own.
