HuffPo Insanity: Karl Rove Paid O'Donnell to Smear John Edwards

Dontcha love it when liberal media elites eat their own in public?

Assuming you do, the cat and dogfight that took place at the Huffington Post Friday is sure to brighten up your Sunday evening.

Our story began at 9:01 Friday morning when "McLaughlin Group" regular Lawrence O'Donnell published an article at HuffPo marvelously entitled "John Edwards Is A Loser."

About three hours later, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley posted a piece entitled "Shut Up, Larry," wherein she imagined that O'Donnell must be a Republican paid by Karl Rove to write the aforementioned article about Edwards (emphasis added):

When I read Lawrence O'Donnell's post calling John Edwards a "loser" and threatening a lifetime of infamy if he doesn't get out of the race, I immediately went to O'Donnell's bio to see his party affiliation. I was sure it would say "R" -- but it didn't. It didn't say anything.

However, I am fairly sure in my own mind that Karl Rove paid him to write that post.

You really can't make this stuff up!

Honestly, when Bush Derangement Syndrome goes so far that it makes a Pulitzer Prize-winning author think Karl Rove paid a devout Democrat to write a hit-piece about another Democrat, it makes one understand why liberals want government to pay for their healthcare.
