Once upon a hack ...

I've been busy taking a mental health break this week (and will get back to blogging maybe tomorrow,) but for those still checking in I present for your perusal The War Room Hack Thirty list of the most hackish pundits.

The War Room Hack Thirty is a list of our least favorite political commentators, newspaper columnists and constant cable news presences, ranked roughly (but only roughly) in order of awfulness and then described rudely. Criteria for inclusion included writing the same column every week for 30 years, warmongering, joyless repetition of conventional wisdom, and making bad puns.
And as Eric Boehlert noted on his twitter feed, the list marks a good point to remember his chapter on The Note from Lapdogs.

Yeah, that is a great series. I just mainly disagree on the rating of who should be at any given position. Friedman who I think is number #3, should really be #1. And Brooks only makes the list at #30!? Come on! Brooks should at least be in the top 10!

I think I would have had to have included Michelle Malkin and illegal torturer Dick Cheney's illegal torture defending daughter Liz Cheney.
