Blogging to the highest common denominator

they tried to do this in 04 too. the ny times ran a story about munitions dumps being raided and the right wingers went nuts. it was going to be the absolute end of the ny times. they know perfectly well what kerry meant but they are purposefully spreading misinformation.
here's something I just wroteThe disintegrating GOP is reveling in their latest, and last, outrage hot the heels of last weeks harry reid fiasco, which no one even remembers. While slightly more substantial than "pen-gate" the furor that arose over john kerry bringing a pen to the first presidential debate and the subsequent video (that's right) blogs, this won't effect the elections and the republicans will be leaving. willfully obvlivious to the obvious explanation, which every honest person who has heard it accepts, the GOP has done to great lengths to let soldiers know that kerry thinks they are stupid. despite their insistence these men and women remain in a hell on earth, they are the ones who support the troops. right wing talk show hosts are gleefully filling up all their alloted time with recitations and a sort of tribal religious dance of outrage, though there is no analysis of his explanation at all. It's the last throws of the GOP leninism, creating and celebrating their own reality. and, let it be said, kerry's lousy contrived "angry" response shows why democrats must not let him run again as they will no doubt be battling some variations of these same far right harpies in 08 and beyond.
I'm not sure what the NYT has to do with it Lester. They came out in support of Kerry. It's the GOP who miscontrued the remarks. Good rant though.
no the ny times in late october of 2004 ran a story about the IAEA places being raided and republicans said it was an october surprise. it's hard to remember because there are so many republican outrages
It's so true, it's hard to keep track. I wish I had kept a list from the beginning.
