Andrew Malcolm: “Nigerian National Petroleum Company Will Make You Rich!!!”

If I had to make a short list of the worst professional polibloggers, the Los Angeles Times’ resident doddering old tool (and Laura Bush’s former press secretary)  Andrew Malcolm would be a shoo-in:

After Sarah Palin VP debate, Joe Biden to step aside for Hillary Clinton?

It’s been one of the most persistent rumors on the internet since John McCain smartly snuffed Barack Obama’s convention afterglow by doing what the Democrat considered and rejected: naming a woman as his vice presidential partner.

Not only is he way late to the race reporting on this idiotic, unfounded email rumor, but he pens a header for his post that implies that it’s a done deal (ignoring, in the process, the irony that it’s Palin dropping out that’s far more likely) and then proceeds to “investigate” the story like, ya know, it’s real and stuff. I wonder how many times Malcolm has emailed his social security number to “customer servises” at “Citybank”?  What a buffoon.

That reads like something concocted by a kook like Riverchucky. How ridiculous.

The commenters over there who don’t have drool coming out of the side of their mouths are pretty much telling him the same thing that Kevin said.

Now that the Vice-Presidential debate has been completed, I wish to inquire about about Andrew Malcolm’s comment on his prediction concerning Biden being dropped from the Obama ticket in favor of Hillary. There was no corroboration of this monumental news break available anywhere on the web as of 9/30/08, and I’ve noticed that the contents of this blog entry have been effectively purged from the LA Times website. Surely Mr. Malcolm must have some vague memory of such a significant announcement regarding this presidential campaign.
Also one related question: why is Andrew Malcolm still employed by the LA Times, (if, in fact he is) or by any reputable media outlet?
