    •  Nedra Pickler Strikes Again (4.00)
      That's an AP "news" article (rather than an editorial) that you've linked to friend. Some of the older hands here recall Nedra's work in the earlier years of the Bunnypants presidency.

      Though there are no classic Picklerisms - a logical nonsequitur linked in a subordinate clause that is presented to undermine a Democrat or progressive statement - there is this gem:

      Some legal experts described the program as groundbreaking. And until the highly classified program was disclosed last week, those in Congress with concerns about the National Security Agency spying on Americans raised them only privately.

      Groundbreaking, eh? Nedra's adapted her tactic to leave the opening implied. Here's how it would have read had she been employing her former journalistic device:

      Though Democrats claim the President's action to be criminal, legal experts described the program as groundbreaking.

      Yes, Nedra, it's good that your writing skills have evolved.

      No, Ms. Pickler. We're still not buying.

      And those of you who'd like to take the author to task need to contact the Associate Press. ... somebody really ought to register this domain name ...
