In the comments to my post about the inaccurate reaction to Sarah Palin’s comments about Paul Revere, Taylor Marsh posted the following:

This post is representative of what’s wrong with our politics on both sides of the aisle.

The lengths some people will go to in order to offer cover to politicians, whether it’s Palin or Obama, who actually deserve the ridicule they’re receiving at the moment.

Pointing out that a statement which has been widely portrayed as inaccurate may actually be accurate is “offer[ing] cover”? I don’t think so.

It’s what bloggers should be doing.

What are we, potted plants?
