Rasmussen confirms CBS results with 58% of Americans and 48 of Democrats calling bullshit on the blood runners and deluded Krugmaniacs.
Readers will have seen the nauseating wall to wall preposterous media commentary seeking falsely to link the Tuscon massacre to Sarah Palin. David Farrar has a pretty good summary here.
For me two points of detail are important. First, the shooter's grudge and assassination plans against the Congresswoman started in 2007, long before anyone outside Alaska had heard of Sarah Palin and second, the devices she used on her map were NOT rifle cross hairs, they were crop markers used in the printing industry.
This is a printer's marker.
This is a rifle cross hair.
Doesn't it remind you of the dumbarse leftist drongos who go on street marches advertising for Mercedes Benz?
Fortunately for America, its population is a lot smarter than the Democrat leadership and its antique media friends. A survey carried out by CBS (hardly the mastermind of Republican Party strategy and spin) has revealed that people have not swallowed the carefully orchestrated lies from the Left.
Of most concern to the spin doctors in Washington will be the news that half their own voters don't believe them either!
A majority of 57% say that politics had nothing to do with the shooting, and even a plurality of 49% of Democrats agree.This tawdry episode of hypocrisy and misinformation highlights for me all that is wrong with the Left, be it in the USA, Australia or New Zealand. It is not the wrong headed policies that are their worst feature but rather their absolute lack of morals and ethics. Obama, Rudd, Gillard, Clark and Goff are all peas in a pod.
It's no wonder they snuggle up to Islamists. At least the Muslims are honest and admit openly that its OK to tell lies about the opposition if it helps their cause.
By the way, the exception to the rule is Chris Trotter who always states his case fairly and who, to my knowledge, has never engaged in the cheap dishonesty so prevalent everywhere else on the Left.
