Fake Walpin "Scandal" Fizzles

The Gerald Walpin inspector general firing is the latest conservative fake scandal to bite the big one. Why? Because like all the other accusations from the right - secret muslim, birth certificate, poor people caused the meltdown, republican car dealers getting shut down - there's no "there" there. The conservative blogosphere really wants to be taken seriously but beyond the stale 5 year old fumes of the Dan Rather memos, they've got nothing - not even the Schiavo memo.

The Republican party is still tied into its top-down structure and seems uninterested at best in listening to them, and their most ravenous elements can't help but to beat themselves into a frenzy over non-scandals that they hype to the moon.
