Must-Read Update From Allah

Just got around to Allah, which was too bad, because had I been there earlier he'd have spared me the effort in taking down Keith Olbermann.

Wait, that requires no effort. Let's move on.

Must read post.

Two big points, with extended articles linked there:

1) According to an anonymous source quoted by Jim Geraghty, CBSNews is now investigating they myriad experts who say these documents are forgeries for, get this, Republican political donations.

I am so angry about this I'm about to explode. As is pointed out on Jim Geraghty's KerrySpot, Ben Barnes, the main on-camera witness for Rather's nearly felonious report, has raised a half-million dollars for Kerry, but apparently that wasn't enough to put his credibility into question.

I am so goddamned sick of the media's baseline assumption that liberals are to be treated as presumptively honorable and honest while conservatives are presumptively dishonorable and dishonest. Liberals can present transparent forgeries and get them on 60 Minutes in just a few weeks of cursory fact-checking; conservatives can present piles and piles of expert and witness evidence and still CBS News searches for our "political agenda."

How about your political agenda, Mr. Rather? You, who appeared at Democratic fundraiser.

2) He also links to an email which seems to come from Bill from INDC's expert, Mr. Bouffard (also known by the liberal media as Mr. Broussard-- but hey, they're the diligent fact-checkers, right?), in which he says:

"Unless someone comes forward with some otherhypothesis, it appears that the memos must be computer generated. i.e.,bogus."

Now, the Boston Globe was eager to quote Mr. Bouffard (a.k.a. Broussard) when he said he couldn't yet be sure the documents were forgeries, but wanted additional time to check other possibilities. (A statement they distorted in order to get the headline they wanted, Authenticity backed on Bush documents, in case you've forgotten.)

So, if the Boston Globe found Mr. Bouffard (nee Broussard, also known as "Mickey the Hat" among grifter-circles) to be a credible witness when his statements could be distorted into supporting the authenticity of the documents, I am 100% confident they'll be willing to print his final evaluation.

Any. Minute. Now.

The epitaph of this story will be: Everything was worse than it seemed, even if you thought it was all pretty shoddy to begin with.

If It's Good for the Goose Update: Jim Garaghty at Kerry Spot, I mean Rather Spot, has decided that if CBS is going to scrutinize document-authentication experts for their political donations, it's only fair to scrutinize CBS employees for theirs.

I don't think you'll be precisely shocked by what he's found.

1 One quibble, Ace: The info that CBS is investigating experts comes from Geraghty's anonymous source. It's by no means a sure thing.

2 Thanks, again. Very loose shit.

I'm committing a lot of the sins that I'm protesting. I'll try to slow it down some.

3 Ace -

Remember the expert Lipscomb and Bouffard are both Democrats that are voting for Kerry.

4 No, they're Republcian dirty-tricks artists posing as Democrats.

Obviously.
