Stephen Colbert takes the New York Times to task for their article suggesting an improper relationship between John McCain and lobbyist Vickie Iseman and looks to FOXNews for examples of "good bad journalism" that the NY Times may want to at least emulate. Or, of course, they could resort to limericks:

There once was a man named McCain

Who had the whole White House to gain,

But he was quite a hobbyist

Of boning his lobbyists,

So much for his ’08 campaign.
