"Jeff Gannon’s weblog is a gift from Providence," gushes The Poorman. In case you forgot, or were trapped under a heavy object for most of the Spring, Gannon was the reporter-esque character who trolled White House press briefings throwing softball questions to the administration and who was ultimately "unmasked" as a credential-less right wing hack and part-time prostitute.

Gannon's blog on Reid's bold move to demand justice from the senate (bold is the Poorman's):

"Democrats claim to want a debate about pre-war intelligence and an investigation into the alleged leaking of the identity of Joe Wilson’s wife. Any such discussion must include a no-holes-barred examination of the Central Intelligence Agency. This will reveal that not only was the agency dysfunctional as the result of eight years of politicization under the Clinton administration, a rogue element within the organization of which Valerie Plame was a part, ran an operation to undermine the Bush administration’s policy toward Iraq."
The Poorman: "No-holes-barred. You can take the man out of e-whoring, as they say, but you can’t take the e-whore out of the man. So to speak. In a related story, Mr. Gannon apparently blogs wearing nothing but a dainty pair of Freudian slippers." (ThePoorman)
