    That would explain why nobody mentioned that Gray actually beat Fenty, and that Rhee was going to be out of a job soon.

    (Of course, if this site was one's sole news source, one would also have not heard last Tuesday/Wednesday about the results of the DC mayoral primary, since it was completely ignored by the front-pagers despite DC's importance. Just as progressives usually ignore the 600,000 disenfranchised of DC.)
