Mark McKinnon skewers Michael Tomasky very well indeed, but there is something to add to his critique. It would surprise me not one iota to find out that Tomasky knows full well that Barack Obama and his supporters use the term “Obamacare” as much as the opponents of Obamacare do. If so, then his decision to label Mitt Romney a racist is one of the most cynical and dishonest political attacks that could possibly be imagined, but one that Tomasky may have been willing to initiate because however dishonest the attack may be, it might serve to slime and smear Romney.
That would make Tomasky a liar nonpareil. Of course, it is entirely possible that Tomasky somehow didn’t know that Barack Obama and his supporters use the term “Obamacare” as much as the opponents of Obamacare do, in which case Michael Tomasky is revealed as a clumsy researcher and reporter nonpareil.
Either way, shouldn’t Tomasky have been fired by now?
