No Washington Post, DO NOT fire Jennifer Rubin

The left needs her. Rubin is so wrong, so misguided, so racist, that she denigrates the right with every word she writes. The disgraced blogger is one of the biggest weapons the US left has against the 'liberal bias' argument promoted by the right wing.

However, Rubin's editor, Fred Hiatt, is a big right wing supporter (he loved the Iraq war and George Bush) so don't expect Jennifer to be going anywhere soon. So the Post's former ombudsman's recommendation to fire her will most likely fall on deaf ears - and probably bring out cries of 'liberal media' all over again.

Remember when CNN hired far right-wing bloggers Erick Erickson and Dana Loesch without any corresponding representation from the left? That worked out well, didn't it? It took ages for that network to wise up. Don't expect the Washington Post to be any smarter than CNN.

UPDATE: Rubin responds:

“hahahahahhahaha” – that’s a direct quote
