Maybe We Should Boycott The Washington Post 

After reading the newspaper for over 30 years I know that the Washington Post loves to pick a person or issue and go on the attack with frequent negative stories. So it looks like Sarah Palin is the latest target. Today there are two such pieces, one on the front page of all places questioning reimbursement she received for travel expenses and another on the front of the Metro Section saying that the McCain-Palin campaign is breaking Fairfax County rules by holding a rally on school property tomorrow.

The first article is meant to make it look like Mrs. Palin is corrupt which is the opposite of the ethical example she has made of herself in her state. The second is completely misleading in that the campaign had cleared their use of the school with Fairfax County officials. But it is easy to see why the Post hates her. In her acceptance speech for the Vice-Presidential nomination Mrs. Palin went directly after the liberal media. And for that she was attacked by the Post the next day:

Ms. Palin last night noted tartly "that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone." It is a good applause line. But the fact is that Ms. Palin has an astonishingly thin resume -- mayor of a small town, governor of a sparsely populated state for less than two years -- for someone hoping to ascend to national leadership. The country will need to hear much more from Ms. Palin before being convinced of the soundness of Mr. McCain's judgment.
Funny, I don't remember the editors saying the same thing about Mr. Obama's credentials.
