Ron Fournier of the National Journal manages to be more pathetic than Alex Jones over the Boston bombing.

Yeah, it killed like 1/1500th of the people 9/11 did and I have a sneaky suspicion it will not lead to two or even one crippling wars that will kill six-figures of human beings and cost trillions.

But other than that, so much scarier Ron — you are so right.  Good job, good effort.

But then, ol’ Ron has the true soul of a modern newsperson.

Karl Rove exhanged e-mails about Pat Tillman with Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier, under the subject line “H-E-R-O.” In response to Mr. Fournier’s e-mail, Mr. Rove asked, “How does our country continue to produce men and women like this,” to which Mr. Fournier replied, “The Lord creates men and women like this all over the world. But only the great and free countries allow them to flourish. Keep up the fight.”

There’s always another ass to kiss inappropriately whether the pants are wet or not, isn’t there Ron?
