Marsha, Marsha, Marsha 

Tennessee's 7th District Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, whose interview with David Schuster on MSNBC has the blogosphere -- both left and right -- fuming, has issued a statement on Schuster's apology:

"First, my heart goes out to the family of the soldier Shuster identified for the loss of their son, as well as this rude interruption of their grieving process by a callous young reporter. I think they deserve an apology from David Shuster more than anyone involved ...

"This incident puts Shuster's journalistic judgment and credibility into question and I hope that MSNBC takes appropriate steps to ensure that something like this doesn't happen in the future. Finally, I would highlight that it is not the place for members of Congress to publicize casualties."

Hmmm. We smell a Congressional resolution coming on: "Be it resolved that Congress deplores the harsh and unfair questioning of conservative members of Congress by the left-wing media. Tough and possibly unfair questioning shall be the exclusive province of Fox News and directed only toward weasely, troop-hating liberals. Amen."

Speaking of Marsha Blackburn
