Clocking in

Earlier this year, Megan McCardle coined Jane's Law:

The devotees of the party in power are smug and arrogant. The devotees of the party out of power are insane.
More evidence for the latter, courtesy of blogger Brian O'Connell, who discovered an entire Bush-bashing article at CounterPunch based solely on the CounterPunch columnist's inability to tell time.

Now, I'd be the last person to deny that the media sometimes gets stories very wrong. But if you weren't insane, wouldn't you pause before writing/ranting like this...

And the abysmal and sycophantic Washington and New York press corps seems to have completely missed the Thanksgiving "breakfast dinner."
...to consider that perhaps they "completely missed" the scoop you've come up with because you've gotten your own facts wrong? (To be "fair" to the Counterpunch crowd, Mr. Madsen and the others are so far left that they're perpetually out of power, so they're perpetually insane; it really has little to do with George Bush.)
