Crack Whores Run The Politico

I have come to the conclusion that crack whores run the Politico.
I know that might not be a popular statement. After all, crack whores do apparently have a better track record of credibility than the Politico lately, but still -- the only rationale I can get is that they are in somebody's pocket for their next hit of crack.
Yesterday, they ran a hit job on Thompson saying he was getting out of the race.
This is like Roger Simon's hit job, also in the Politico, in which he claimed Fred botched a meet and greet. Yet, when video came out, it showed very clearly that Simon had gotten it wrong.
This is like them claiming John Edwards was getting out of the race when he didn't.
I like several of the guys at the Politico a great deal, but this is really pathetic. If not crack whores in charge, I suspect they've fallen for the shtick where they are getting good access from trusted people in one campaign and they've begun to lose some objectivity -- they no longer question.
But, whether crack whores are running the place and needing to stay in good with their source of crack hit funds, or whether they just have fallen in love with a particular few sources and no longer take things with grains of salt, their coverage has lately been less than accurate when it comes to the Thompson campaign.
And now the FredHeads want to stick it to them.
