Washington Post reporter Dan Balz is one of the most intellectually impaired reporters working today. Balz has made a career parroting whatever Beltway conventional wisdom is out there, regardless of how polls show it is totally disconnected from reality. He regularly writes declarative statements that have literally no connection to anything other than what he and his insulated cocktail party friends have decided in a vacuum America believes. Balz today writes that Hillary Clinton's "support for the invasion of Iraq when many rank-and-file Democrats opposed it show[s] her determination to overcome the party's historic weakness on national security." He just reports it as a fact, because he and his arrogant Beltway cabal decided it was fact.
