Quotable: Matt Taibbi

Matt Taibbi wrote a scathing, intelligent disgorgement of Sarah Palin in the October 2, 2008 edition of Rolling Stone. It is nice to see an intellectual that isn’t afraid to grab the mantle of intelligence and use it to beat a duplicitous moron to a bloody pulp. It isn’t available online yet, but once it is, I’ll link to it from here. Here is a snippet that captures the vitriol:

Free Speech TV: Amy Goodman on checks and balances

Back by popular demand, Amy Goodman explains (shortly after being let out of jail) why we need the checks and balances of a free press in our society. Those of you that were dozing during high school civics class or are too far removed to remember this, please pay attention.

Note: the producers mentioned in this video have since been released from jail thanks to Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN).

Pps: You could still call the numbers listed to let them know that this behavior is unacceptable
