Gawker Takes on David Broder

David Broder, the top centrist columnist in the country, picked up (by last count) 218 newspapers is being taken down a peg by those new media whippers.

Useless Old Man Fed Up With Useless Old Legislative Body
By David S. Broder
Thursday, April 1, 2010

Congress is broken. Partisanship is bad. Partisans are bad. Whatever you think of the thing that this column is ostensibly about, about which I will offer no actual opinion or analysis, you have to agree that it is bad when politicians act like politicians.

Democrats tell me one thing. Republicans tell me another thing. Which one of them is right? The answer is that they are both bad because they cannot come together to tell me one thing.

Brilliant.
