More "Gordon Smith is moderate" pap from the O

They must offer raises at The Oregonian for anyone who can help beat to death the "Gordon Smith is bipartisan" meme. Now they're even pointing out that Gordo's brother is a moderate -- this latest according to their political blogger Jeff Mapes. "Lest you stereotype Milan Smith as a right-wing Bush appointee, note that he can be as hard to pigeon-hole as his senatorial brother." Gee whiz, people, give it a rest. Even if it were true -- which it isn't -- it's gotten mighty tiresome.

"Bipartisan"? Heck, I don't care about his sex life anyway.

On another note entirely, is it too late to elect this guy to Portland City Council?


We can forget that whole "cover the reservoirs" thing....

...is it too late to elect this guy to Portland City Council?

The housing inspector, or the homeowner?

These guys are just bi-curious.

Oh, sorry - the guy with the downspout idea. You gotta admit, that's the kind of can-do attitude we need at CoPo.

They do loves their Gordon Smith at the Oregonian.

I can't think of a single time that paper has held his feet to the fire for anything... anything!

My favorite was the story over a year ago where the headline used the word moderate. That word was also featured in the subheadline, the cut line for the photo, the jump line directing you to the inside page and the headline on the inside jump.

Every single possible element of that story said Smith is moderate.

Ridiculous. And the copy editor who responded to my complaint to the public editor came off as smug little twerp.

Gordy and The O, sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
