I'd ask for a refund

Columnist Mark Steyn announces a new policy for his columns-

By the way, like the nightly news shows, this column now has an exclusive lavishly funded Fact Check Unit set up at great expense (a colorful graphic with the words "FACT CHECK ALERT!") in a lame attempt to pass off our transparent political bias as some sort of scientific exercise. Our accredited credentialed licensed expert Fact Checkers from the University of Factology in the Czech Republic are standing by to rigorously Fact Check the candidate's claims. We check facts so you don't have to. All you have to do is sign up to our Fact-Check-Me-Now! Service, and we'll send you a daily Fact Check on your Facts Machine, which costs only $79.95 from Radio Shack (sorry, no checks).
How did the fact check service do? Steyn writes-
Evidently the O-Mighty One was not happy after his encounter with Joe. He's still willing to talk to Ahmadinejad without preconditions. But never again will he talk to Joe the Plumber without preconditions. Outraged at the way the right-wing whackos were talking up Joe the Plumber as if he were an authentic regular Joe, like Joe Biden, the O-Bots of the media swung into action. Vast regiments of investigate reporters were redeployed from the Wasilla Holiday Inn back to the Lower 48.
There is no Holiday Inn in Wasilla. There is a Best Western. A google search for Wasilla hotels brought it up for me in less than a minute.

Try again Mark. Just don't rehire the person who verified Florida as being part of the Caribbean. OK?

Michelle's American White Racist:

Fact check from the CZECH Republic? Ya, sounds really good.

Hmmm, so are you saying Steyn was not using hyperbole to make a point that the press decamped from Alaska and then gave Joe an ass reaming for daring to ask a question of the messiah?

Or are you just nit picking like the rest of the MSM? Obama for the record still has not explained his socialist comment, then again there's really no need to because we all know he has the most liberal voting record in the Senate, and for a 1 term senator that's saying something to have beaten out the likes of Boxer, Kennedy and Schumer.

OOh the brilliant Bill Jempty has found another error by that evil Mark Steyn. I am so unimpressed.

What is it about you and Steyn anyway? Get a life.

I thought the column was pretty funny. If you were nitpicking because you have a problem with Steyn, Bill, then fine. But I think you could have found a better column than one with riddled with satire.

If I'm wrong, then just ignore me.

This is petty. Why can't you acknowledge Steyn has a way with words and is clever/funny?

This might appear to be petty jealousy at some point on your part, Jempty.

I think Steyn's great.
