"Crooks & Liars" Discovers Best Way to Defend Rep. Pete Stark
Nutrooters Crooks and Liars discovers that if you can’t possibly win an argument over the latest disgusting anti-military, anti-Bush remarks by a Democratic politician…
Then just lie about it.
This is how Crooks and Liars reported the remarks by Rep. Pete Stark said on the House Floor on Thursday:
“I’m just amazed that the Republicans are worried that we can’t pay for insuring an additional 10 million children. They sure don’t care about finding $200 billion to fight the illegal War in Iraq.”
“President Bush’s statements about children’s health shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than his lies about the War in Iraq. The truth is that that Bush just likes to blow things up – in Iraq, in the United States, and in Congress.”
And… Here is what Rep. Pete Stark actually said on the House Floor on Thursday that was so outrageous and offensive:
“They sure don’t care about finding $200 billion to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where are you going to get that money? Are you going to tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement.”
In case you need further proof HERE is the video of Rep. Stark’s outrageous attacks on the troops (blowing up innocent people), and on President Bush (get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for President’s amusement):
Crooks and Liars decided that if they couldn’t win the argument they could always just misreport what was said!
Brilliant but Dishonest
UPDATE: Hah! The Crooks & Liars decided to post the full text to Stark’s ugly rant later in the day. (That is why I posted the snapshot of their blog earlier.)
They said it was a “problem with coding.”
UPDATE 2: LGF reports that Crooks & Liars are deleting their comments now as fast as they’re posted.
The Jawa Report has more.
