Right Wing Nut House

Whew! It’s a good thing we live in a neo-fascist, semi-theocratic military dictatorship. Otherwise, poor Karl Rove would be going to jail for about 10,000 years. As it stands, Karl’s getting a free pass because his boss, Der Fuehrer Adolph…er, George Bush controls the government, the press, the judiciary, and just about anything else that isn’t nailed down or shut tight. So of course, Rove’s boss would protect his “architect” with all the power of the state at his disposal.

I mean, here’s a perfect example.

Newsweek getting “caught” like this has Karl Rove’s stink all over it. Am I the only one who sees this pattern at work?…one that is destroying the credibility of the press? Not that the press hasn’t made its own mistakes (thanks NY Times/Jason Blair)…but when it comes to “big news” stories where The White House gets to shout “How dare you!” because sources turn out to be shady (even though the facts of the story are never refuted)…

Come on, folks…who’s going to benefit most from living in a country where when CBS or Newsweek says the people in power have done something bad those people can do their best Ronald Reagan imitation and say “There they go again.”

Imagine that! Rove using the rope-a-dope on the press. Cleverly drawing them into his spider web where he can watch them hang there, twisting, slowly…slowly in the wind. I must say, I didn’t see this one coming. Looks like I’ll have to get my tin foil hat adjusted again, dang! This is what I missed last September when the TANG story broke on CBS. I had to send the damn hat back to the factory to have it reinvigorated with anti-protons to repel the Rovian waves emanating from the White House:

The right wing better watch how far they want to take this. Perhaps Bush was able to destroy the original Killian memos to ensure that the truth about his National Guard service will never see the light of day. But he is not powerful enough to destroy the proof of these prisoner abuses, if they indeed occurred (and I think they did). Somebody will talk, somebody will release the Guantanomo version of the Pentagon Papers, and the credibility of the right wing will take another substantial hit.

Maybe the moonbats should start using reverse-reverse psychology. You know..like Maxwell Smart used to catch the KAOS spies.

Max: I know

99: I know you know.

Max: I know you know that I know.

99: I know you know that I know that you know.



Max: Sorry, 99.

Or would somebody rather play politics with this? The way Craig Crawford reconstructed it, this one went similarly to the way the Killian Memos story evolved at the White House. The news organization turns to the administration for a denial. The administration says nothing. The news organization runs the story. The administration jumps on the necks of the news organization with both feet — or has its proxies do it for them.

That’s beyond shameful. It’s treasonous.

Now that’s more like it. Line ‘em up against a wall and shoot ‘em! Just one thing though…what’s treasonous about it? I mean, do you think it’s treasonous that the press is so easy to bamboozle? Or is it treasonous that the “Administration” (it was actually the Pentagon that Isikoff sought confirmation from…we think) in the person of some low level flunky doesn’t know everything about every scrap of paper that passes through the halls of government?

I’d go for the former. That way we can hang Rush Limbaugh from a sour apple tree and give the hot shot to Ann Coulter.

One thing’s for sure. I don’t care what anyone says, I’m keeping my hat on tight - at least till 2008. If Karl Rove wants to try and control my thoughts, he’ll have to pry this thing from my cold, dead fingers.

    The latest conspiracy theory coming out of the lefty tinfoil hat crowd is that the Newsweek story was purposely planted. By whom? Pentagon, Bush, Evil Genius Karl Rove, Dr.Evil, the bad rat from the Rats of Nimh, or others. This is similar to the th…
