See What Happens When You Joke?

Oh Dana…

Seems like our favorite Sketch artist — Dana Milbank — was too busy ridiculing the American heartland to actually check his facts.

A reader writes in to tell us that, after reading this from Milbank’s recent washingtonpost.com chat

    Washington, D.C.: I’d suggest that Omaha spend that money building something worth protecting – and then protect it.

    Dana Milbank: That’s a thought.

    In fairness, Omaha has an excellent stockyard. I understand they plan to build a moat around it like they did to protect the Washington Monument from truck bombs. The question now is how all the cattle are going to get past the moat so they can be auctioned.

…the stockyards in Omaha have actually been closed since 1999.
