Glen Johnson is the shockingly biased and dishonest AP reporter who covers the Romney campaign. Yesterday we drew attention to Johnson’s exchange with Mitt Romney in South Carolina on the status of lobbyists in the Romney campaign. Romeny said that lobbyists aren’t running his campaign; Johnson argued that they are. Following the exchange, as Paul noted, a woman in attendance called out Johnson for being “rude and ugly.” Johnson has now filed a story in which he continues his argument with Romney.
Reading Johson’s story today puts me in mind of the Henny Youngman joke:
A man goes to a psychiatrist. The doctor says, ”You’re crazy.”
The man says, ”I want a second opinion!”
”O.K., you’re ugly too!”
In Johnson’s case, we’ll make it: “O.K., you’re an unprofessional jerk too.”

UPDATE: Reader Stephen Bier directs us to this misleading Boston Globe story on Romney’s exchange with Johnson and observes:
Since you quoted Henny Youngman, I will quote Groucho — who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes? I could not believe the [Globe’s] inaccurate characterization of this. I even showed [the video] to one of my very liberal colleagues and she agreed that Romney was calm, though pointed, but Johnson was a belligerent ass.
A third opinion for Glen Johnson!
