A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Denial isn't just a river in Egypt: Washington Post TV critic and avowed liberal Tom Shales has a brief year-in-review column which contains the following gem:


Even bashing Bush might be interpreted as endangering the troops -- hogwash that nonetheless got plenty of circulation. Tireless press critics during war or peacetime, the conservatives were handed a valuable new weapon when CBS News fumbled a report detailing the president's shoddy record as a member of the National Guard back in Texas. The report was attacked virtually the moment it aired on "60 Minutes"; documents used to bolster the allegations were condemned by conservative critics as phony and forged, though no forging has yet been proved.


If any informed individual continues to believe that those documents could possibly have been created by a 70s-era typewriter then they're either deep in denial or a complete idiot. Shales, while often wrong, is no idiot.

Comments:
Shales is an idiot. Only an idiot could believe the NG documents were real.
 
"either deep in denial or a complete idiot"

I say neither, It's a deliberate attempt to rewrite history.
