WaPo Hates Obama because of Iraq?

The Washington Post continues its habit of hatin' on people that were right about the Iraq War, with the following biased piece: Obama Tax Plan Would Balloon Deficit, Analysis Finds

Here's the dollar amount Obama would increase the defecit:

According to a recent analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, Obama's tax plan would add $3.4 trillion to the national debt, including interest, by 2018.

You'd think the Obama number would be huge by comparison with McCain, given the headline treatment. And yet:

According to the Tax Policy Center, McCain's tax plans would increase the national debt by at least $5 trillion over the next 10 years

So, you've got McCain's plan adding at least 1.6 trillion dollars more to the deficit, and yet that only warrants one sentence of text in a story from an ostensibly liberal publication. Right. Damned Liberal Media. (I can't even muster an exclamation point for that today)

The board of this paper supported the war in Iraq, and the editorial page editor supported the war quite forcefully. It must be a terrible feeling to have hundreds of thousands of deaths on your conscience. I can understand those people wanting to lash out at the people who were right, and made them look like such flower-smelling gullible fools in the process.
