A great how-to by the AP

So, I was reading this boring little AP article about a tea party protest in Searchlight, Nevada (home of the one and only Harry Reid).  The gathering was headlined by Sarah Palin, and Andrew Breitbart showed up as well.  I found one line in particular to be particularily ironic and especially stupid, so please note that it's my emphasis on teh stupid:

Conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart disputed accounts that tea party activists in Washington shouted racial epithets at black members of Congress amid the health care debate, although he didn't provide any evidence.

Really, AP?  Really, you're going to slip that tiny, innocuous little phrase in there?  You're going to be the ones saying that Breitbart didn't provide any evidence?  Because, as I recall, it's you and your fucking cronies who are lacking in any damn evidence for anything.

Oh, but let's not stop there, AP.  No, you're right; pointing out that there's no evidence for tea partiers screaming hateful slurs isn't nearly enough.  You had to go and find a damn birther in the crowd, too, because we all know that no smear of the conservative group isn't complete without a birther quote:

Leonard Grimes, a 70-year-old retired logger, said the nation is drifting toward socialism, and he's not convinced Obama is eligible to be president.

"I'd like him to prove he's an American citizen," said Grimes, a registered independent who is originally from Michigan but now lives in Golden Valley, Ariz.

In summation, fuck you, AP.  In a very, very uncomfortable place - and I don't mean the back of a Volkswagen.
