Pot, kettle

March 5, 2009

As a friend was kind enough to point out, Vincent Carroll of the now defunct Rocky Mountain News is whining because Congressman Jared Polis did a little gloating over the paper’s demise. From the Denver Post.

Jared Polis hardly waited until the tears had dried on the faces of some Rocky Mountain News staffers before he delivered an eerily callous address congratulating bloggers for the death of the paper. The 2nd District Democratic congressman followed up his comments Saturday, 24 hours after the final edition of the Rocky threw more than 200 people out of their jobs, by claiming that he hadn’t actually meant what he said.

From anyone besides Mr. Carroll this might just read as a rather sleazy plea to the sentimentality of his readers. Being that it is Mr. Carroll, however, it’s nothing short of breathtaking in its hypocrisy.

Lest we forget, this is the same asshole who mocked Colorado’s own Vine Deloria Jr. on the day of his funeral.

The difference being, of course, that Vine Deloria Jr.’s family were grieving an actual death.
