The Facts Machine

"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Friday, May 28, 2004

In a followup to my observation yesterday that, true to form, right-wing pundits are collectively questioning Al Gore's sanity, Media Matters has a pretty comprehensive roundup.

I'm pretty sure that falsely attributing mental conditions to political opponents is something better reserved to Stalinist Russia. Don't tell Krauthammer, John Podhoretz, Dennis Miller, Mark Levin, Joe Scarborough, Michael Savage, David Frum, and so on.

We all know what this is about: Al Gore got more votes than George W Bush. Thus, Bush's legitimacy as President will always be in some form of question, no matter how many firefighters he puts his arms around. Thus, the right has decided that the best way to ensure Bush's legitimacy is to falsely paint the guy who got more votes as being a crazy headcase who's liable to blow at any minute, so that way Americans can go "Whew! We really dodged a bullet in 2000 there!"

Stalinist bastards.
