Take Responsibility, Dammit!

Geeze, they've actually said it OUT LOUD...

I just read this. How sickening!

"Leading Republicans, with the support of conservative media outlets, are charging that the Mark Foley scandal was a plot orchestrated by Democrats to damage the G.O.P.'s electoral prospects this November." source

This was NOT leaked suddenly - the story was known by insiders up to five years ago, and the Harper's reporter knew of it last May. The Mark Foley scandal is NOT a "plot orchestrated by the Democrats" as Mr. Dennis Hastert claimed on the Rush Limbaugh radio show - it's a 50+ year old elected official trying to lure underage boys into sexual congress. How in the world can the Republicans blame this on anyone but themselves? A member of their own party perpetrated the crime, and other party members covered it up - thereby endangering other young boys. How can the Democrats possibly be to blame?

We NEED to change things! This cannot continue.

They don't need even a semblance of logic, fact, or common sense to perpetrate the argument. Allegedly, it was Goebbels who said "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

We've seen this before. Some 30% of the country still believes Iraq had WMDs and was directly involved in 9/11.

Besides, the content isn't even important. What matters here is setting and maintaining the emotional association: "bad nasty child predator" associated with "democrat party."

Just like yesterday when it was "North Korean nuclear bomb" associated with "Clinton."

Just noise.
Dangerous noise.

Its the same old story though - it happens because we (the public) allow it to happen. I include myself in this criticism.
