Josh Marshall's been raising as ruckus over at Talking Points Memo over the start of a new Washington Post column called... (drumroll please)... Talking Points. He's not happy about it and is trying, rather successfully by his account, to get his readers to email the WaPo to complain.

So what does the one-man staff at GeekPol have to say about this? Josh Marshall is being a freaking crybaby, and hypocritical to boot. Faux News has been using "Talking Points Memo" as the opening host bloviation segment for four years now on Bill O'Reilly's show. Say what you want about the gun-grabbing Royalist O'Reilly, he did have that phrase first. It would be wise for Marshall to keep quiet about getting ripped off when he has some 'splainin' to do with respect to O'Reilly.

In an even sillier move, Marshall brags about the Washington Times picking up the story. Seeing as the WashTimes doesn't have any real reporters, they make no mention of Fox, and they got Marshall's URL wrong to boot. It's just another chance for the Times to jab pointed sticks at the Post. Why do work when someone else does it for you, eh?
