Well, Yeah, They WERE Fake!

So Dan Rather scores 50% on his "fake but accurate" defense.

ABC News reports: Guard Officer Denies Seeking Help for Bush

The man cited in media reports as having allegedly pressured others in the Texas Air National Guard to help George W. Bush is speaking out, telling ABC News in an exclusive interview that he never sought special treatment for Bush.

They found Col. Staudt who not only denied "sugar coating" Lt. Bush's performance evaluations, but also shoots down the whole thesis of the CBS "news report:"
"He didn't use political influence to get into the Air National Guard," Staudt said, adding, "I don't know how they would know that, because I was the one who did it and I was the one who was there and I didn't talk to any of them."

So Dan is left with the word of two partisan Democrats on a 30 year old story that has been investigated elsewhere several times.

No way is Karl Rove smart enough to make this stuff up -- no way!

Hat-tip: Blogs For Bush. Bill Hobbs says: "Dan Rather should not resign immediately. He should be fired. Right after apologizing to the American people and President George W. Bush live on the CBS Evening News."

I'll be glad when the election is over and Dan Rather, Al Franken, and all the rest of the dirty hippies can display contempt for the facts and reason of election results instead of doing so about poll results and national guard memos. Yes, we'd best prepare ourselves for another round of "Bush stole the election" since denial of reality is a chronic condition once one becomes afflicted.

Speaking of Al Franken, I heard Al speaking today with Joe Conason about the fraud they are convinced will occur in Florida due to electronic voting machines with no paper trail. Funny that they don't seem to mind that similar machines used in Venezuela had no paper trail and that the voting machines had two-way electronic communication from the central office. If the Carter center disputes US elections having rubber-stamped the farce in Venezuela I think my head will explode.
