Lie #1: President Obama wants to euthanize your grandma!!!

The truth: These accusations?of “death panels” and forced euthanasia?are, of course, flatly untrue. As an article from the Associated Press puts it: “No ‘death panel’ in health care bill.”4 What’s the real deal? Reform legislation includes a provision, supported by the AARP, to offer senior citizens access to a professional medical counselor who will provide them with information on preparing a living will and other issues facing older Americans.5

Lie #2: Democrats are going to outlaw private insurance and force you into a government plan!!!

The truth: With reform, choices […]

Fight The Health Care Smears

On August 10, 2009 By

Remember Fight the Smears? I spent the better part of a year using it as inspiration and fodder to hammer insane wingnut lunatics out to prevent Barack Obama from becoming President by lying and sowing seeds of fear and loathing among the masses.

It didn’t work out well for them.

One reason it didn’t was a coordinated effort by the campaign and by bloggers like me who fought back – hard. It’s the only way you deal with insane ignorant bullies. Hit them hard and keep hitting them until those who might sheepishly go along are forced not […]

McCain Deceives, Deese Informs

On August 10, 2008 By

Too bad we can’t see this on TV. Hopefully it will at least make the rounds as much or more than smear emails. Brian Deese, a campaign policy advisor, refutes the various deceptions that John McCain is using to attack Barack Obama.

McCain’s latest “negative ad” (You listening PeeDee?):

The Obama camp sets it straight:

So I got put in a pickle. Let me illustrate:

[rock] [eric] [hard place]

You see. I made it known how we were gonna fight anonymous email smears of Barack Obama:

1. Reply to everyone who got the email that you can tell (you may need to copy addresses from a quoted email that was forwarded). Tell them the truth.

2. Forward it to

3. Forward it to me and I’ll blog it (include the entire message including original sender/recipients)

All well and good until you get one from your own mother. This is how insidious this […]

This from a guy who considers himself a McCain fan:

“But I can confirm to you that we never tortured him. We never tortured any prisoners.”

Mr Duyet reminisces instead about how he often summoned the future US presidential candidate to his private office for informal chats.

“We used to argue about the war – about whether it was right or wrong,” he says.

“He is a very frank man – very conservative, and very loyal to his country and the American ideal.

“He had a very interesting accent and sometimes he taught me words in English and corrected […]

The Boogie Man is Coming!

The Boogie Man is coming:

Full Story...

If you needed any indication of the slime that is going to be tossed in the next few months during the Presidential Election, one need look no further than Jeff Gannon (outed male hooker fake reporter) and Larry Sinclair (lying smear merchant seeking 5 minutes of fame) coming together at the National Press Club. No pun intended.

The National Press Club is going to give this lunatic the stage to do what? Spout his deranged nonsense about Obama having a drug induced homosexual affair? Please.

You will remember back in January we told you about this nut case. […]

Last November I went down to Columbus to meet some friends at Brazenhead. We ate. Had a few beers. Talked politics and life. Good times. Afterward, a buddy and I decided to hang out a bit more and shot over to Hi Beck for some pool and another beer or two. Again, good times.

This is about the time that rumors were all around Columbus about Marc Dann and his scheduler Jessica Utovich. I was hearing stuff, but not paying too much attention to it all. On our way out we see someone we knew who worked for the […]
