It Figures

As the right wing continues to boil in fury over the made-up, vicious smear it is now calling "Weiniergate," what do you think CNN's reaction was to this completely false, manufactured lie?  Why, of course...today they invited serial liar Andrew Breitbart, who is responsible for spreading it, to come on their network and "explain" to the American people what it is all about.

Just get ready.  If you think this is bad, wait until you see what they have in store for Obama and the Democrats in 2012.  They're just draining off our outrage at this point, hoping to exhaust us before they get to the real hate.

Update:  I didn't actually hear this segment on CNN.  I have now learned that Breitbart used his appearance to accuse Weiner, without one shred of evidence, of having had multiple affairs with young girls.  His CNN hosts did absolutely nothing to confront him on this blatant, vicious lie.  On the other hand, if a Democrat accuses a Republican of trying to destroy Social Security and Medicare (something which they have been openly working to accomplish as long as these programs have existed,) well, that is way out of bounds, and the person who brought it up needs to be severely chastised and treated as a pariah ever after.

Like I said, these are the rules that are going to govern the 2012 election.  Get ready- it's going to be ugly when the hyper-rich and their bought-and-paid-for media do what they have to do to con the American people into voting for them.

I got to the "real hate" some time ago.

And to think that all of this--the death panels, the Muslims, the weiners--is for one purpose only: so a very few people can accumulate all the money.
