Disgusting Lies

Krugman: "The slime campaign has begun against AARP, which opposes Social Security privatization. There's no hard evidence that the people involved - some of them also responsible for the "Swift Boat" election smear - are taking orders from the White House. So you're free to believe that this is an independent venture. You're also free to believe in the tooth fairy." [NYT]
Isn't it disgusting how the "swift boat veterans" can keep sliming anyone they want with their LIES to push their agenda!? But, like Mike says, expect a lot of coverage of the "Real AARP Agenda" on all the cable news networks. [Kos] [IsolatedIncident]

Herbert: "If John Ashcroft was right, then I was staring into the malevolent, duplicitous eyes of pure evil, the eyes of a man with the mass murder of Americans on his mind. But all I could really see was a polite, unassuming, neatly dressed guy who looked like a suburban Little League coach." [NYT]

This nation has lost its soul. There was a time when the press reported the tragedies of war, and of torture. It was as repugnant then as it is now. The difference? Reporting.
