Censure the RNC
In an attempt to scare the bejeezus out of an America that has precious little bejeezus left in it, the RNC is using
lies distortions to attack Sen. Feingold for proposing to censure Bush.
Despite the fact that Feingold has repeatedly asserted that "No one questions -- no one questions -- whether the government should wiretap suspected terrorists," an RNC radio ad attacks Feingold for reprimanding the president "for pursuing suspected members of al Qaeda."
"Which," as Emi Kolawole writes, "isn't true."
Couple thoughts. A. The fact that that they're taking the trouble to lie in order to smear Feingold means that the bejeezus has been scared out of the Republicans as well and B. They have every right to be scared because although America's representatives aren't for censure -- yet -- America is. To the tune of 48% to 43%.
Kolawole's article also notes deceptive claims about the Patriot Act and Democratic calls for impeachment. Three deceptions, one ad. Very economically sound. Too bad the same can't be said for other Republican policies. (Factcheck)
