WaPo Whapping

WaPo's been on an embarrassing tear trying to undo the GOP gubernatorial candidate in VA. The Weekly Standard's take on that is amusing.

Occasionally, however, WaPo does redeem itself, as witness this story related to Congressman Wilson's "Liar!" moment, in which we learn how other Parliaments treat their PMs, just by way of comparison.

At least Joe Wilson didn't slice President Obama's sausage.

That's what happened last year to Italy's then-Prime Minister Romano Prodi when two members of an opposing party started scarfing slices of mortadella -- a sausage from Prodi's home town of Bologna -- in the Senate chamber to mock the embattled leader.

That's just the beginning of a thoroughly enjoyable read.
