When I was in London last week to interview journalists about investigative reporting, several of them referred to the Guardian as 'the thinking man's newspaper'. Right. That's why this (ahem) 'quality broadsheet' prints job ads for political assassins:
Quite frankly, the man's either wired or mad. If it's the former, he should be flung out of office: tarred, feathered and kicked in the nuts. (...) He flashes us a dumb little smile, like a toddler proudly showing off its first bowel movement. (...) On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod's law dictates he'll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr - where are you now that we need you?
Funny how liberal journalists define a 'thinking man'.
