Political Forecast: Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post doesn't know s--t

Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast

Wow, this guy is either really dense, really uninformed, or just plain stupid. I used to think he knew a bit about politics, but I guess he doesn't like to fact check any of his information or anything like that.

In his discussion about the DNC plans to insert one caucus after Iowa and one primary after New Hampshire, he writes: "Iowa state Sen. Ed Fallon may have been the least known but most important participant.

Fallon ran a surprisingly strong primary campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination this year, a bid based largely on his opposition to the war in Iraq. Though he came up short, his race showed that antiwar sentiment is running strong in the Hawkeye State.

Meanwhile, Edwards's recent statement confessing that he erred in his 2002 vote authorizing the use of force in Iraq has been showered with praise by the party's antiwar wing." ... Fallon's campaign wasn't 'based largely' on any opposition to the Iraq war (even though I'm pretty sure he is against it). Look here at his site - these are the issues he ran on. They were Iowa issues entirely and Cillizza, if he were to have researched, would've known that.
