During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act

Compare and contrast. We have the guy that lied about Joe Lieberman’s web site being under attack and writes  Liberal Bloggers Demonstrate Their Political Immaturity, Democrat Says,

This ugly morality tale – which mercifully concluded Tuesday with the second of the two offending online staffers resigning from the Edwards campaign – revealed the Kossacks in all their angry adolescent glory: impudent, impotent, unreflective and unaccountable.

He’s outraged at some liberal bloggers that each ran their own web sites and are not Kossacks ( get your facts straight Dan) and bemoans the sometimes hyperbolic blogisphere yet has nothing to say about neocon Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy and a former assistant secretary of defense who used this fabricated quote from President Lincoln to warn anyone that should dare disagree with the our current Liar-in-Chief, “Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.” Then The fabricated quote was repeated, not by a blogger, but by an actual elected official Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska). Gerstein who served as a communications director for Joementum also said this,

The Iraq war notwithstanding, which has temporarily tilted the political landscape in our favor, the long-term electoral math is stacked against us – surveys show conservatives currently outnumber liberals three-to-two. Thus, if we want to win the White House and become a majority party again, it’s not enough to excite our base. We must also expand it.

That is pretty pathetic for someone that is supposedly a major player in Democratic circles, GOP is losing ground in party-affiliation polling

But for 2006, Democrats pulled away, leading Republicans by 3.9 points, with 34.3 percent identifying themselves as Democrats, 30.4 percent as Republicans and 33.9 percent as independents.

This represents a swing of 5.8 points in just three years, from a GOP lead of 1.9 points to a deficit of 3.9 points.

That’s from Charlie Cook who is one of the most cautious political analysis out there. Dan also managed to dismiss the ever petulant demagoguery of Bill Donahue, Bill Donohue Defended Bush Catholic Outreach Staffer Who Was Outed As Sexual Predator. Tapped also notes that Dan among others keep speaking about “Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan as if they’re the same person?”

Dan also had nothing to say about – Georgia State House Rep. Ben Bridges (R), chairman of the retirement committee in the state house. 

“Indisputable evidence — long hidden but now available to everyone — demonstrates conclusively that so-called ‘secular evolution science’ is the Big-Bang 15-billion-year alternate ‘creation scenario’ of the Pharisee Religion,” reads the letter that went out under Bridges’ name. “This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”

Antisemetism is still rife in right-wing circles regardless of their disingenuous embrace of Israel. Here we go again equating a colorful rant against a religious orgainzation’s views on birth control with the rabid and non-stop hate politics of the Right. In Dan’s mind fish and whales are the same thing because they both swim in the sea.

Bomb explodes in southeastern Iran

A Sunni Muslim militant group called Jundallah, or God’s Brigade, which has been blamed for past attacks on Iranian troops, has claimed responsibility for the Wednesday bombing.

Iran has accused the United States of backing militants to destabilize the country. Tensions between Tehran and Washington are growing over allegations of Iranian involvement in attacks on U.S. troops in
Iraq, and over Iran’s nuclear activities.

Remember that Bush said,

Pressed about what the “head leaders” are doing, he went on:

Either they knew or didn’t know, and what matters is, is that they’re there. What’s worse, that the government knew or that the government didn’t know? … What’s worse, them ordering it and it happening, or them not ordering it and it happening?

The implication being that the Iranian government is to blame regardless, because they have absolute control of the population, obviously that is not the case. Jundallah would be sympathetic to Sunni insurgents in Iraq. In Iraq, anyone can make a bomb

PRESIDENT BUSH HAS now definitively stated that bombs known as explosively formed penetrators — EFPs, which have proved especially deadly for U.S. troops in Iraq — are made in Iran and exported to Iraq. But in November, U.S. troops raiding a Baghdad machine shop came across a pile of copper disks, 5 inches in diameter, stamped out as part of what was clearly an ongoing order. This ominous discovery, unreported until now, makes it clear that Iraqi insurgents have no need to rely on Iran as the source of EFPs.
