More FALSE propaganda

Original post made by Propaganda, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 9, 2009

The latest chain e-mail sent to us from a reader puts some words into the mouth of former Sen. Tom Daschle that raised our eyebrows. Daschle, you may recall, was once President Barack Obama's choice to be secretary of health and human services. He stepped down from consideration amid revelations about tax problems, but some think his fingerprints can be seen in some of the health provisions in the economic stimulus package signed by the president in February.

The BEST that the radical right can do is copy and paste unchecked mass e-mails! And a major conservaitve value is supposed to be integrity? WTF?


"In the chain e-mail, quote marks are shifted, clouding the issue of who is actually speaking, and the e-mail suggests that Daschle actually said that."

I just don't get it. These educated conservative, likely wealthy conservatives have only hurt themselves with all this B.S. backed by NO factual evidence.
