There's a quote that I can only remember in paraphrase, but it works if you insert Chait's name: that Chait will see two people arguing, one saying that 2 plus 2 equals 4, and the other that two plus two equals 8, and Chait will condemn both for fanaticism and pronounce the answer 6.

If you take "falsely" out of BOTH statements, you've got a clearer take on the situation.

So wait, let me get this straight. If you take out the fact that the Swift Boat's statements about John Kerry's service record were out-and-out, thoroughly debunked lies... the situation gets clearer?

Or are you asserting that maybe Cindy Sheehan's son didn't really get killed?

I'm confused.


Bravo Mr. Mannion.I noted sadly that several bloggers were gulled into responding to Chaits inapt squib as if it was an honest (if poorly reasoned) effort offered in good faith.It was not.Happily, you answered it with the measure of contempt and derision it so manifestly deserved.The article was a clumsy and prolix libel masquerading as analysis.His C.V. is well known;He stooged for Peretz for years,stumped enthusiastically for this nitwit war.Nothing daunted,in this latest clownish screed he actually has the bumptious temerity to accuse the Netroots(actual,you know,liberals)of being...wait for it...PROPAGANDISTS.Ooooh, scary!Oh, and we're also Deeply Unserious.Or something.Mr. Chait,along with Jokeline,Kaus and the other Slate microbes,Althouse,TNR and every other clapped-out hulk in the false-flag-liberal Fleet of Glorious Wankitude have been getting holed below the waterline by the Intertube Grenadiers,and it's made them a little peevish.He's responded,as have they all,by ignobly calumniating his betters(again,actual liberals).Not complicated.All done!


Don't take them (MSM) seriously Lance, no one does anymore ;)
