Blumenthal: 'Almost Certainly' Karl Rove Was Behind Rathergate
LGF ^ | Sep 27, 2007 | Staff

Posted on 09/28/2007 8:31:38 PM PDT by Anti-Bubba182

The far left’s campaign to rehabilitate the CBS Killian memos and attack the bloggers who discredited them is in full bloom today, as Sidney Blumenthal makes a ludicrous, stupid accusation in an article for Salon.com:

Dan Rather stands by his story.

"..Within minutes of the conclusion of the broadcast, conservative bloggers launched a counterattack. The chief of these critics was a Republican Party activist in Georgia. Almost certainly, these bloggers, who had been part of meetings or conference calls organized by Karl Rove’s political operation, coordinated their actions with Rove’s office..."

Rove? Karl Rove?

If only this Blumenthal tool knew the terrible secret of LGF. Rove is the least of your worries, Sidney. Bwahahaha!

These guys must think that they are the most important people in this country. Nobody thinks that they are credible except the duped democrat party, the kossucks, sorosites and leftists in general. Dan just has an ego the size of Texas and wants to try a comeback from oblivion. Dan....go away.

At the time, people blamed Rove as a joke, Sidney. A joke.

The moonbats go around with bumper sticker that read "01.20.09" or sometingto that effect.

That's Inaugural Day, but it's also the day the moonbats have to quit BDS cold turkey.

We all get our marching orders from Karl Rove? I thought it was Dick Cheney! How come I didn’t get the memo? I paid my dues at the last VRWC meeting. Come on, people.

Actually, Blumenthal and his buddy Josh Marshall were obviously in on it. http://www.americanthinker.com/2004/09/eye_on_cbs.html

Christopher Hitchens has locked horns with Blumenthal in the past, love to see his take on this.
Christopher does have a way with words.

Thanks.

"Mister Grassy Knoll" is a nickname for Sidney Blumenthal that he has had for years. Personally I doubt Blumenthal believes the stuff he writes and does it for propaganda purposes and financial gain.

Jim Rob has been holding out on us, I didn't know that Karl Rove was a Freeper.

And today on “MEDICINE WITH SYDNEY”...

Watch as Sydney tries desperately to bring Dan Rather's last abortion to full term but fails, and all in the operating room are horribly disfigured when Sydney’s scalpel slips and he accidentally removes nurse Hillary Rachett’s brain!

Its a mirthquake of fun and excitement!

NEXT WEEK:

Sydney attempts to inject General Petraus with the experimental MoveOn serum but accidentally injects himself, resulting in an incurable case of Leftosis that causes him to babble incoherently and blame the other doctors and nurses for his mistakes.

You’ll break your funny bone laughing so hard!

The recent Rather resurgence has me wondering if Dan has ever seen the famous overlay of the purported "memo" and the Microsoft Word version. If he has, and he's still claiming the "memo" is authentic, then he's gone way beyond deluded.

If Karl Rove was good enough to organize that whole thing and have it work out as well as it did, then it’s political brilliance. He truly would be a “Magnificent Bastard” if that were the case. This was just a fouled up hit piece by Rather/Mapes/SeeBS, and they got called on it.

He doesn't care how it was solved. He has an assignment to carry out. He's just doing the job he's been paid to do which is to slime Republicans any way he can.

In the case of Rather the lefts response is good, because any moron can see that they are flat out wrong on this one. It like trying to sell a JFK assassination film with Kennedy riding in a 1992 Cadillac.
