And I Thought I Was Cynical!

An e-mail on the Gawker nonsense

I am somewhat cynical about the motives of all of the left-wingers and news services protesting the Gawker story.  Wouldn’t everyone be better off just ignoring the story and not commenting on it or acknowledging it’s existence?  Instead, they tell everyone (98% of whom would otherwise not have heard of the story) about their disgust.  Yet, many conservative voters will likely have a slightly diminished view of O’Donnell as a result of the details.  Mission accomplished for ABC and the others.  No way this story even sees the light of day by the mainstream media if it was a Democrat.
