Born at the Crest of the Empire

Maybe somebody could have guessed that chick was lying about being attacked by a black Obama supporting mugger because, you know, the "B" was backwards. Like maybe it was done in a mirror?

(You're telling me that the right wingnuts who caught up Dan Rather on the available IBM selectric typefaces of the late 60's didn't notice that?)

On the bright side, Texas has a new entrant in the long running Texas v. Florida "crazy off."


  • And, yes, I know.

    I've frequently thought that the whole Rather thing was a Rove set up. "Leak" fake documents, and then seed a friendly skeptic to put the focus on Rather rather than the Air National Guard story.

    No proof, but that's always been my supposition.

  • And of course, the existence of the fake documents never disproved that Bush failed to fulfill his military commitment. But they sure did kill the story.

  • Right. It smelled of a very effective Rove trick.

    I don't know if you know Rove history, but there was a very nasty governor's race in Texas where Rove (allegedly) bugged his own candidate's office, then brought out the bug in a huge fuss blaming the other side.
