    It now says
    "Her response in effect is ' “you know who doesn’t deserve government money? Black people!”

    I'm pretty sure it didn't say that on the first go round, because I clicked all the links in his column to see where she said it, which I wouldn't have had it been an obvious paraphrase which it is now.

    I have seen some amazingly crappy writing on the Washington Post lately - most of it in their blogs. I have to guess the editorial hand is a lot weaker there because any competent editor would have rejected the first version

    •  And now it has this disclaimer (3+ / 0-)

      UPDATE: We thought this was obvious, but in the interests of total clarity, the phrase “you know who doesn’t deserve government money? Black people!” is meant to be a satirical paraphrase, and not an actual quote from Bachmann. We’ve edited the above to make that clearer.

      uh, no - it wasn't obvious in the first version.  Incredibly lazy and bad writing by Sargent.
