Turnabout is fair play?

I wonder — did the fact that the Left has drunk the Kerry Kool-Aid on the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth issue lead them to issuing these fake memos?

Look at it from the Left’s point of view, i.e., that the SBVfT are a bunch of obvious liars and Republican operatives throwing completely bogus and easily disproven accusations at Senator Kerry. If that’s the state of things, then what’s a few faked memos that are true in essence? How is it any different than what the Republicans have already done?.

If you’d asked me a few years ago if serious people could be suffering from that level of reality dysfunction, I would have laughed in your face. Now having seen the Kerry campaign and read a number of leading Left leaning weblogs, it seems very plausible. Sic transit gloria sinister.

UPDATE: Orrin Judd agrees with me although he fails to credit me. What, you think he works up all that stuff without me whispering in his ear? The question is, what did Judd know and when did he know it? I’ll be working on a photonic analysis to prove that some of the very same pixels were used in both posts…

Well, if he stole, he also improved. Brevity is the soule of wit!

Ouch, that hurts! But, but

  • This is a short post for me
  • It’s not like a USS Clueless post
  • OJ got to use a long excerpt to set up his pithy remark

I’ll just resign myself to taking one for the team in the interests of the greater good.

It’s probably the regular way of things that the originator of a good idea is lost to the mists of history, while the popularizer is remembered.
