Not Worth the Used Toilet Paper It's Printed on

Everybody knows Mitt Romney is full of shit, but it is hard to imagine that somebody can be so full of shit that the last used car salesman you met was closer to the mythical cherry-tree-hacking George Washington than to this guy:
In France, for instance, I'm told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past.

Sure. And in Belgium people have tails. But that's Mitt Romney, he leaves droppings like that a lot. The serious question is, how does the Washingon Post report on this poopy accident? Does it inform the readers that they should not be so foolish to quote Mr. Romney outside of indecent jokes? Does it at least present the relevant facts in a neutral fashion? Nope. It just moves on, washing its hands Pilate-like by linking "France" to all its news on France. Let the readers sort it out; they are paid for it, aren't they?

The Washington Post has become a joke. Were it printed on used toilet paper, it wouldn't be worth the paper it was printed on.
