Republican Mixed Messages on ‘Fact-Checking’

They just can’t handle it. The rabid righties are skittering around like squirrels on meth, trying to do ANYTHING to smear, distract, distort and toss their own special aromatic brand of feces on the Democratic National Convention. Example:

FACT CHECK: FIRST LADY’S FALSE FAIRY TALE OF STRUGGLE
by JOEL B. POLLAK

First Lady Michelle Obama’s pitch to voters last night relied on the premise that she and her husband understand what it is to struggle to make ends meet. She spoke movingly about their early years–about how a young Barack Obama drove a car that was “rusted out” and found his furniture “in a dumpster,” how they both came from families that had to “scrape by.” Her fairy tale–however well-delivered–was one great, big, colorful lie….

I make no overt refutation, because, sadly, no prima facie case is presented. It’s just garbage. Laughably so.

Just as Republican governors and legislatures have done everything in their power to make it impossible for Democratic demographics to vote with their new voter ID laws, shorter early voting hours, etc. etc.

And what does this actually tell us?

That A) Republicans are CERTAIN that they could not win a fair election or a fair argument and B) that they are actually AGAINST democracy.

What is hilarious is that while Breitbart creates their phony “fact check” James Taranto at the Wall Street Urinal  launches a full frontal assault today on fact-checkers (and, by implication, “facts”).

Half are charging, half retreating, disorganized and disreputable demagogues.

Ah, Life in the Craptastic™ Blogosmear®.

Schadenfreude can be a lovely thing.

    I have been posting the truth at the Radical Washington examiner and they seem to want to suppress the truth. Day in and day out they bash Democrats and our president by eliminating opposing views. I need some help on that site and it is fun to read the right wing attacks when a Democrat post the truth about Romney and the right wingers. It is easy to post on their site. You can either sign up with Disq or you can just enter an email and post when you want. Help me ight for freedom of speech.

  3. If you’ll take a look at today’s posting “The Manipulation of DNC Coverage by a Cabal of Bloggers” you’ll see that the Washington Examiner is featured, along with the Weekly Standard (William Kristol) as two peas owned by the same pod-people.

    Stay tuned. They’re cast members from the demonic musical I’m going after.
