Washington Post Gets Definitive On Obama's Intelligence... a story about Donald Trump's role in forcing the release of Barack Obama's birth certificate, we see an odd assertion:

But even as he suggested that one controversy might be put to rest, Trump raised new questions Wednesday about Obama’s background.

“The word is, according to what I’ve read, is that he was a terrible student when he went Occidental. He then gets to Columbia. He then gets to Harvard,” Trump said. “I heard at Columbia he wasn’t a very good student. He then gets to Harvard. How do you get into Harvard if you’re not a good student?”

Obama, a former constitutional law professor and the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, is widely recognized as an intellectual heavyweight...

By who, exactly?  The folks who work at the Washington Post?

You would think that if a major newspaper would make this type of assertion in a news story, they would follow it up with anecdotal evidence of said subject's intellectual heft.  But strangely enough, none is provided. The next sentences goes on to repeat Obama's proven falsehood (thank you, Jake Tapper) about the "birther" story dominating new coverage...

A sad trend amongst liberals is that when provided unassailable evidence that their pet theories do not work when applied to real life, their answer is not to reconsider their convictions, but to close their eyes, stamp their feet, plug their ears, and repeat their false assertions ad nausem, as if it will act as a magic talisman to bend reality to their demands.

Seems as if the Washington Post is now travelling down the same road...
