Shocked, I Am Shocked

Seems there was a little kerfuffle in the offices of the Seattle Times.

Seattle Times Executive Editor Dave Boardman wrote today in one of his morning notes to staff that there had been "an awkward moment at yesterday's news meeting." That's the meeting where editors and other staff from throughout the newsroom talk about the stories planned for the next day's paper. Boardman wrote in "Dave's Raves (and the occasional rant)"

When word came in of Karl Rove's resignation, several people in the meeting started cheering. That sort of expression is simply not appropriate for a newsroom.

Who would have thought there would be that kind of reaction. The smart money would have placed bets on hearing the following from Mr. Boardman,
"WOO - HOO!!! Champagne for everyone and someone gets some strippers here fast. But just strippers this time and not the hookers like we got when we helped the Dems take back Congress".

The Seattle Times, keep your political views to yourself.
