I got sucked into a political thread at that other place, and it turned out to be really stupid--with the exception of the pinhedz posts. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, I think I finally got it out of my system.

pinhedz wrote:But since there's been more smoke than light on this thread, I'll recap the substantive points:

-- Karl pulled a fast one in his reporting, but he did not change the meaning or "mischaracterize" the e-mail. The phrase "all agencies" in the original e-mail was a smoke screen, so Karl's wording was substantively correct.

-- There is a widespread misunderstanding about "equities." Concern about State Department equities does not discredit the White House, even though you (and likely Karl as well) believe that it does.

-- Dan Pfeiffer made the mistake of overplaying his hand and made a false accusation, and had to pay the price. In the end, Pfeiffer's mistake hurt the White House more than Karl did.

That's about all there is to it.

As luck would have it, I just got an e-mail from Dan Pfeiffer. Very Happy
I don't think I'm supposed to be sharing this, so let's keep it between us. Cool

"To all staff,

The postmortem is now complete, and I regret to inform you that it appears to have gone badly for us. I blame no one but myself (I was the one who put his foot in his mouth), and I'm afraid the damage control will be messy. Pinhedz assessment looks to be right on the mark (thank you pinhedz, for your insight an honesty Smile ).

On the positive side, this is not an election year, and the public is unlikely to remember this unfortunate incident by next year (let alone by 2016).

So let's dust ourselves off and soldier on; we're still in the middle of the game. Smile

Thank you for all your hard work,
-- Dan"
