How a serial liar suckered Dems and the media

But Wilson does know; he went there, he talked to officials, and he lied about America’s national security in order to be the anti-Bush crowd’s Playmate of the Month. Either he’s profoundly wicked or he’s as deranged as that woman on the Paris Metro last week who falsely claimed to have been the victim of an anti-Semitic attack. The Paris crazy was unmasked within a few days, but the Niger crazy was lionized for a full year.

So this Wilson guy has done some pretty good damage to Bush and now that he’s been found out to be a fraud will the media apologize? Of course not. The truth doesn’t matter only that Kerry wins. How sick is that?

    I don’t think anyone feels this issue is over with. The story and investigation still is unfolding. A couple of probably overly simplistic points:
    -If it was such a fraud about the Niger/Uranium/Iraq “16 words,” then why was it the Bush Administration that later said they shouldn’t have been included in the State of the Union?
    -If it was no big deal that someone in the Bush administration outed Wilson’s wife as a CIA agent, why doesn’t that person step forward and end the legal investigation?

    I’m not saying there aren’t good answers to either of those questions, but given the unfolding story, your statement isn’t correct in my opinion: “… now that he’s been found out to be a fraud will the media apologize? Of course not. The truth doesn’t matter only that Kerry wins. How sick is that?….”

    And I want to sound as respectful as possible here because, geesh, you do not sound happy.
