Rather Sad

The crybaby Keyboarders have declared war on their newest enemy: Richard Thornburgh. The wingnutosphere is crying "whitewash" following the release of the independent report analyzing the 60 Minutes piece on AWOL Bush. Thornburgh, a Republican, served as an Attorney General for Reagan and Bush. In 2002, the present Attorney General, Johnny Asscrack, called Thornburgh "a person of integrity and independent stature." The wingnut bloggers believe if they pout and stamp their tiny feet hard enough, Thornburgh will be revealed as a stooge of the Communist Broadcasting System.

As far as I can tell, the droolers' major beef is that Thornburgh and his law firm failed to attribute partisan motives to Rather and CBS, stating that there was no evidence to support such a charge. The claim of Rather bias is a favorite fairytale the 'wingers tell themselves; they accept it as an article of faith and therefore need no proof. The lesser beef is Thornburgh's refusal to make the story one of blogger heroics, another sad delusion of the Barcolounger Brigade.

In any event, the 'wingers ignore the most important truth of the story. As TBogg puts it, "Four lose their still hasn't shown up for his."
