There is so much lying, vicious right wing garbage about the right wing terror attack in Tucson that I just can't stand it. I'm going to appoint one spokesman to stand in for all of them, and one story to demonstrate the respect for truth and decency which these people display. It's from the miserable excuse for a human being, Jim Hoft, a frequent target of my comments, and one of the widest read conservative bloggers. Here it is:
"BREAKING: DAILY KOS PUT A “BULLS-EYE” ON REP. GIFFORDS IN 2008
Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, January 10, 2011, 7:44 PM
This hateful vitriol must stop!
Top leftist blog Daily Kos put a bulls-eye on Rep. Giffords in June 2008. "
Here's the graphic accompanying this article:
The bull's eye, the picture of Gabrielle Giffords, the enlarged caption and the two arrows do not appear in the original story, and were apparently added by Hoft himself, who has, since he was discovered, altered the post without comment.
This is the sort of thing we are fighting. Is it any wonder we have so much trouble getting people like this to ever do the decent thing?
