In Case You Missed It: WSJ Is A Right-Wing Piece Of Crap

The Republican National Committee web site is showcasing a piece of propaganda from today's Wall Street Journal (WSJ) called “In Case You Missed It: Karl Rove, Whistleblower,” in which the WSJ assumes the usual GOP tactic of smearing anyone who tells the truth about the Bush Administration.

If your lunch has already settled and your stomach can take it, go ahead and take a look at the editorial. It's pretty much as you've come to expect: turn Karl Rove into a hero for exposing an American CIA operative and vilify the agent's husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, as the bad guy.

They spend the bulk of this piece of trash dismissing Wilson's first-hand findings in 2002 that, despite what President Bush knowingly lied about in his 2003 State of the Union speech, Iraq had not tried to buy uranium in Africa so they could make weapons of mass destruction.

I guess these people – including the WSJ – are so accustomed to misleading people that the fact that Wilson turned out to be absolutely right about the false Iraq-Niger connection doesn't put a dent in their silly allegations.

That's their story and they're sticking with it.
I bet anything that when the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City was bombed by Timothy McVeigh, the GOP found a way to place blame on the children in the day-care center.

It's a good thing nobody outside of downtown Manhattan takes the Journal seriously as a real news source or this kind of writing could really hurt them.
