Attacking Journalists As Insufficiently Leftist

Well, it had to come sooner or later.

Now, the boys and girls at Ranting Kids ... er, Raising Dough ..., er, "Raising Kaine" are attacking the Washington Post's David Broder as insufficiently Leftist. His sin? In today's column, Broder decries Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's despicable declaration of surrender ... er, "loss," in Iraq. You see, it's not enough for the moonbat Left that Broder links Reid to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, savaging both. No, Broder dares to call out Harry Reid for the surrender monkey that he is.

Of course, the actual difference between the two is that Broder equates Gonzales' apparent ineptitude in responding to the non-scandal over firing eight U.S. Attorneys who serve at the pleasure of the President with Harry Reid's drunkenness over having some measure of personal power, and trying to get more by weakening America.

One would hope that a journalist as distinguished as Broder would be able to tell the difference.

According to Lowell, it seems that "this is the same David Broder who said back in March 2003 that he was 'unaware of any efforts by the administration to link Iraq to 9/11,' despite many months of statements by Dick Cheney and others that, at the bare minimum, strongly implied such a link."

The idiocy of that statement is apparent. Broder noted that "he was 'unaware of any efforts by the administration to link Iraq to 9/11,'" and even Lowell Feld is honest enough to admit that he can come up with only that "Dick Cheney and others ... strongly implied such a link." Apparently, Brother Lowell doesn't know the difference between what "Cheney and others" implied and what the moonbat Left chose to infer.

But don't expect the far Left to be able to make a distinction between what actually happened and what was actually said, and their self-serving fantasies.

After all, the truth stands in the way of their lust for power.
