Journal Times Gives The Finger To Democracy
On the heels of Sunday's shitnugget of an editorial on Medicaid expansion that was so full of debunked bullshit, one would think the editors of the Journal Times might lay low for a few days.
Not so much.
Today's post-election gobsmacking editorial read:
"Americans For Prosperity involvement in local races isn't bad"
And good morning to you too, assholes. The Siren knows what you're thinking: isn't this the same paper who gave Paul Ryan his own column to write whatever he wanted even while he was running for re-election until they were shamed into stopping it?
Yes, it is.
It isn't that it is so surprising the Journal Times would have this position - it is just that the editorial is so stupid. The best way to highlight the dumb logic is to let you read it - but the JT counts clicks on the internet, and they don't much care whether its because you like them or loathe them. So we're reprinting the editorial here - and guess what? We're gonna do it with notes!
We haven't done this in a while. As always, the Siren's thoughts are in red.
