What, You Think We Expect Our Republican Affirmative Action Hires to be Good?
Shorter Verbatim WaPo ombudsman Patrick Pexton:
If your politics are liberal and you don’t generally read Rubin, but you read her Norway posts, you probably would be pretty offended. But if you are a conservative, or someone who reads Rubin regularly, you’ll know that this is what she does and who she is.
Rubin was hired by Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor of The Post, to be an opinion blogger who would appeal to conservatives and people who want to follow conservative politics. She does.
I concede the point! Well, except that I have liberal politics and yet unfounded assumptions and comically transparent non-sequiturs in the service of being the most obsequious Republican lickspittle this side of Fred Barnes are also exactly what I expect from Jennifer Rubin…
