I was torn about the message of the film in the same way that I think I am about the war in Afghanistan itself. I don’t want any more senseless American death. And at the same time I know that there were bad people there and good people that need help.
Jake Tapper offered up this take on the new Mark Wahlberg Afghan War film “Lone Survivor,” and is currently getting savaged for it after an interview with the subject of the film didn’t go so well. But did he bring up an issue that deserves more consideration?

Congratulations are in order for one Mr. Jake Tapper, former senior White House Correspondent for ABC News, who was just hired as the newest anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN. There’s no mention of the show that Tapper will presumably helm, but CNN did say the network “[looks] forward to developing a program that takes advantage of all of his strengths, his passion and his knowledge of national issues and events.” (Photo via ABC News) source

Not long before word of Christopher Hitchens’ death broke, Jake Tapper tweeted that legendary B-movie director Roger Corman died. His info was bad, however, and he’s spent a lot of time apologizing in the last 20 minutes.

Say it ain’t so, Jake! He could’ve left well enough alone but instead associated the comments, made by someone who isn’t Obama, with Obama. Plus, on top of that, plenty of worse things have been said by the Tea Party about Democrats and Obama. So this is pure fluffery that distracts from real issues.

Jake Tapper is officially awesome. So, that’s it. We stumbled upon Jake Tapper’s Wikipedia page and are officially fanboys. This guy drew a cartoon for Roll Call called “Capitol Hell.” He dated Monica Lewinsky before she was infamous. He wrote a book about Jesse Ventura. Officially considering starting up a fuckyeahjaketapper page. A question to our politically-minded Tumblrs out there: Have you ever seen any of this man’s cartoons? We can’t find them online, and we’re super-curious. (above photo from Tapper’s 2007 interview with Fred Thompson, via Flickr)
