    Fine, Laura, it's from a book.

    You quote the book -- at length.

    But YOU NEGLECTED TO TELL US THE TITLE OF THE BOOK, OR WHO WROTE IT, which anyone disputing your account will cite as "proof" that what you've written isn't true.

    Without those key attributions, Clawson's piece is as much hearsay and useless as Paul Ryan's unattributed invocation of the story Eloise Anderson told him.

    THIS is journalism?

    How sloppy does the Daily Kos, and the articles it solicits, have to be before readers rebel and demand that it adhere to some minimal journalistic standards?
