Cornering the Market on Irony

Michael Ledeen laments the Wall Street Journal‘s liberal bias in not fronting John Kerry’s poorly delivered joke from Monday in today’s edition:

Nothing at all on the front page of the WSJ, quite disgraceful. In case you wondered about the WSJ newsroom, the main political story is an allegation of graft against a Republican congressman.

A story that should have been delayed until after the election. Talk about journalistic ethics! Get a new editor for the news section.

Belle Waring wonders, “Is this supposed to be satirical in some way?”

Perhaps Ledeen accidentally set his clock back to April to mark the end of Daylight Savings Time….
