Skip to comments.Blumenthal: 'Almost Certainly' Karl Rove Was Behind Rathergate
Posted on 09/28/2007 8:31:38 PM PDT by Anti-Bubba182
The far lefts 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 Roves political operation, coordinated their actions with Roves office..."
Rove? Karl Rove?
If only this Blumenthal tool knew the terrible secret of LGF. Rove is the least of your worries, Sidney. Bwahahaha!
Almost certainly....Mister Grassy Knoll has spoken.
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.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Kenneth?!
At the time, people blamed Rove as a joke, Sidney. A joke.
That's Inaugural Day, but it's also the day the moonbats have to quit BDS cold turkey.
Oh, her pet poodle with the snappy little bite is still with her.
That dog needs training. Where’s Ceaser when we need him.
Ah, I long for the olden days when Ken Starr was responsible for everything.
Ping to you.
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.
Karl Rove is multi-talented, devious and busy.
Is this the same Sid? Is he still “metro” or did he come “all the way” out?
LOL...continue to show their stupidity...goof balls...
Sid Vicious....one more reason why the Clintons should NEVER regain power.
"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.
Giving Rove way too much credit.
Blumenthal becomes a Blumen idiot. Of course, he has heard that joke his entire life.
Funny, I always thought Dan Rather was behind rathergate...
Jim Rob has been holding out on us, I didn't know that Karl Rove was a Freeper.
Yeah, just because he has an earthquake machine doesn't mean he knows anything about typewriter fonts.
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!
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!
I just love the way conservatives make libs do and say the dumbest things..conservatives were responsible for rathergate..conservatives forced senator turbin to go the Senate floor and compare our troops to nazis, etc...conservatives forced democratic-run polls to mess up..etc...let’s face it..we must be evil to make such good people do bad things.../sarcasm
Directed Hurricane Katrina to hit NOLA. Blew the levees by himself. Has caused all global warming. Started the Iraq war. Causes gas prices to go up. Causes gas prices to go down. ROVE YOU MAGNIFICANT BASTARD!!!!!!!
I am really angry now. I have been here since early 1997. No one ever invited me to one of Rove’s meetings or conference calls. That sucks. What, I’m not trustworthy? I’m suspected of being a Hillary mole?
Another run on tin foil is about to start....
This cat gets its (note the missing gender identifier, the cat could be a tranny for all the DU lurkers and Blume spies know) marching orders from Rove’s dog Rover!
“Rove, you magnificent bastard, I READ YOUR BOOK!!!”
Hey, Sid! You still beating your wife?
Sorry, they were on a "need to know" basis.
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.
They’re onto us. I posted the same thing. You paid your dues, didn’t you? I’m not a mole, are you a mole? I tell ya, it’s a conspiracy.
should someone email this poor man and let him know how this was really solved!
Karl Rove would almost certainly rather get behind Blumenthal's gate.
He knows. He is putting out a line of BS, and ineffective BS at that. I will give him props for making a living out his nuisance value.
They’re geniuses in their own minds. What more is there to say?
A mere 10 year member! Only FR members with 25+ years of seniority are invited to share in the work of His Royal Highness Karl VIII.
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.
Rove is sneaky and devious. That makes him snevious. The paranoid psychosis of the Lefties is what has me most concerned about them.
Hey, Sid, did your wife fall down the stairs again?
