bottom line: CBS based their story on a lie. it was a bad story. and they need more than a 90-second apology. this is their "genoa."
 
2013-11-11 11:15:31 AM  
And by "liberal attack machine" they mean "hard facts".

Apparently "fact checking" is not considered "attacking."

Reality does have a liberal bias.

Seems to be growing into a MO.

"We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said at a panel organized by ABC News.

Wow, this David Weigel guy is pissed that people want to hear actual facts, instead of hot-air and bullshiat.  Imagine that.

Nah, it sounds more like a good Megadeth or NIN album title to me.

Heh!  That makes me think of the Conservative Attach Machine...a potato with an AR15 strapped to it.

The part where he scaled a 12-foot fence and smashed a terrorist in the face with the butt of his rifle were perfectly believable, but they should have become suspicious when he then claimed to exclaim "I'm Batman."

The tact taken by farklibs in this thread is quite telling. Quite, quite telling. You will note that none of them are saying that "there is no liberal attack machine." No, they are not. Instead, they are saying that the liberal attack machine is something laughably inefficient, something that might be adequately compared to a cat riding on a robotic vacuum cleaner. None of them are speculating over how many people might be killed by such cleaners every year, none of them are raising the fact that cats are essentially walking carriers of pestilence and disease. No, instead they are only peddling  quaint, humorous image for us all. Cat on Roomba = Completely Harmless. Repeat a lie often enough and people will come to believe it, as Roosevelt said.

And this is how they prosper, these liberals. They hold themselves up as laughably inept, as harmless, as open-minded and caring about every view. In truth, though, they ruthlessly seek out and destroy all with whom they disagree. They can do this because they are funded by individuals and organizations of unimaginable wealth and power -- think George Soros, for example. Media Matters. ACORN. These organizations live largely in the shadows and construct a public image that is no more than the mask a comic book villain uses to conceal his identity. They move in the shadows, they attack in the dark, and then when the light of truth is upon them they smile benignly and shrug and retreat to MSNBC and Daily Kos and say things like,  but how could *we* have a liberal attack machine. I mean, look, we couldn't even launch a healthcare website without screwing it up. Such is their deception.

But do you want to know something that will keep you awake at night? No, you do not, you have bought into the lie already. But I will tell you anyway, because the only weapon against such a lie is the truth. There is an individual -- an entity -- known to us who will use this approach, this vile masking of evil and destructive intent with a cloak of benign ineptitude. That entity is none other than the Anti-Christ, who many say will appear on this earth as someone who promises good. But be not fooled, because behind that benevolent smile lies the end of all things. I'm not saying that any one particular liberal is the Anti-Christ, although from the Bible we know that he'd most likely be of dark skin and inhabiting a position of great power. But perhaps they are being used by him. Unwittingly or not, who can know? We must prepare.

"I think he may be falsely accused," said McCain. "It appears to me as if they are trying to shoot the messenger here, rather than try to explain the total mishandling of this whole situation. You discredit the Britisher because you can't discredit his message.

Those things kind of went hand in hand, Senator Grandpa. His message means nothing, he was sitting in a hotel room that night.

Well, what's more pathetic?  The cat riding the the Roomba, or the conservatives who still shart their knickers at the cat ride the Roomba?.
