So CNN is taking to blaming the Democrats for not "properly vetting" Graeme Frost and his family. Um, if they had "vetted" them, they would see that the Frosts are a perfect example of a family that needs S-CHIP because of skyrocketing health costs and a catastrophic accident. This is the equivalent of "she was dressed provocatively and asking for it." What the hell is John Roberts (the idiot reporter, not the Chief Justice) talking about?

I actually thought that the media was figuring this one out, that the conservative movement (not just "bloggers") crossed way over the line on this one. Apparently not.

Would it make any difference if Mitch McConnell's staff was behind the smear? Apparently not, since that was known before CNN aired their "story."

Manley cited an e-mail sent to reporters by a Senate Republican leadership aide, summing up recent blog traffic about the boy’s family. A spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declined to comment on Manley’s charge that GOP aides were complicit in spreading disparaging information about Frosts.

I know, CNN could devote a resource or two to tracking down this angle. They could maybe investigate if the Senate Minority Leader took part in a campaign to hunt down a 12 year-old boy. That would be "journalism" instead of pontificating from an air-conditioned studio.


UPDATE: Malkin loses it. She can't take the fact that she has an archive, and that people found out that she couldn't find affordable health insurance in Maryland 3 years ago (the Frosts are also from Maryland). She's also mad that anyone would ask to debate her about SCHIP, because that would "distract from the issue." Debating the issue would distract from the issue. Fascinatin'! She is a pathetic creature.
