Someone at Politico is getting some extra kibble in his bowl! Seriously, this happened: Politico swoonily says that President Obama’s pick of Hagel for Secretary of Defense appeals to his “bipartisan spirit.” You know, that spirit that moves him to say things like “I won” and stuff.
Politico article un-ironically refers to “Obama’s bipartisan spirit” in Hagel choice. politi.co/UvvBop

Nothing is surprising coming from Politico. Remember, Politico called life-threatening SWAT-ting just a little “elaborate practical joke.” Politico also said Fast and Furious was “kinda real, but not really,” and predicted hard questions for Obama at a press conference. And that doesn’t even delve into the absurd and absurdly biased tweets made by individual Politico reporters.
The mocking was swift and spot-on.

And another “news” outlet.

Politico: “The Hagel decision appeals to Obama’s bipartisan spirit.” The only thing bipartisan about this nomination is the opposition to it

It’s stories like that last RT that make it clear you can’t take Politico seriously.

On the plus side, giggling is great cardio.

@politico “Because it appeals to his [Obama’s] bipartisan spirit” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA BEST LAUGH OF 2013 so far. The guy has no such spirit.
