In the previous post, I linked to a TMZ.com item that said Barack Obama might be sneaking the occasional cigarette. Now I have seen Jake Tapper’s blog post (one of the sources for the TMZ post I linked to), and it just drips with holier-than-thou hokum. It’s not the smoking, readers — it’s the lies.

It’s not a big deal in the scheme of things — the war on Iraq, a major economic crisis — indeed, it’s miniscule. Hardly worth mentioning.

Except that I don’t like feeling that I wasn’t being dealt with honestly. And as much as citizens who are suspect [sic] of the media might scoff at such a notion, many of us consider ourselves to be your representatives to help make sure our leaders are telling us the truth, and leading the country down a path we’re confident is the right one. (Corny, I know.)

Yes, readers, Jake Tapper thinks it’s a problem if Obama’s maybe not telling the truth about firing up a couple of Marlboro Lights every now and then, because Jake and his friends in the news media are very concerned about making sure that politicians are all being honest with the American people. If I were making this up, you wouldn’t believe it.

  1. Love the deep investigative reporting of the real issues as to what is needed in a president today.

    Without this wishy-washy but ‘scoop’ report that a cigarette may or not be consumed in a sneaky way, was the smoking gun needed to turn the tide of the country.

    Nice job.
