Froomkin Throws A Middle Finger Up, Says See Y'all In A Few Weeks

Dan Froomkin's recent firing from the Washington Post resulted in a huge (and much deserved) backlash from the blogosphere.

The Post published his last column today, which includes this fantastic line:

Hopefully, the next time the nation faces a grave national security crisis, we will listen to the people who were right, not the people who were wrong, and heed those who reported the truth, not those who served as stenographers to liars.

Wherever Froomkin eventually lands, take note. He's been one of the best, and we need him to continue to hold Obama accountable. You know, like a journalist.
