Even if some sneaky Republicans did perpetrate this hoax, it served to expose a very important truth -- how the left-leaning media instantly believes and disseminates ANY anti-Bush information no matter how flimsy the evidence for it. If it was Republican hoaxsters, I hope they run a similar hoax in a couple of weeks -- only with some fake anti-Kerry docs. Then, when the MSM thoroughly investigates the docs, determines they are fake and runs stories headlined about how someone is spreading fake anti-Kerry docs, the hoaxsters can reveal themselves and prove their point beyond a shadow of a doubt.
"it served to expose a very important truth"
Good point. Hannity whacked, I believe it was Harkin the other day. He read several lines, implying they were Bush's words about going to war with Iraq. Harkin bit the bait and started blasting Bush whereupon Hannity said......ah, Kerry said that, not Bush.
It was really a phenomenom to see Harkin's head morph into a horses a$$.
