TPM’s Josh Marshall steps into Candy Crowley lapdog costume; vid of Crowley walk-back

Er, Josh, perhaps you need to get up to date on CNN’s most up-to-date admission that President Obama’s “act of terror”/Rose Garden claim wasn’t — to use Anderson Cooper’s words — as “cut and dry” as the spinner-in-chief and his media wing lady made it out to be.

Anderson Cooper just said the “act of terror” line was “not cut and dry” as Crowley said it was. #debate @cnn

After the debate, moderator Candy Crowley backtracked and said Mitt Romney was right “in the main” on Libya. fb.me/xXX4ZAm7

Heh:

.@politicalmath My best friend’s dog is more of a journalist than that guy.

Poor dear:

@davidshuster Crowley changed her story already, try and keep up#current2012
