Must read: Joe Conason on the right's transparent(and lame) attempt to demoralize Democrats about John Kerry.
Also, Limbaugh is using his own money to place ads containing Moonie propaganda (a May 9th editorial from the Washington Times). I heard from an unnamed source that the ad is a desperation ploy to avoid an indictment.
More Moonie stuff: Moonie Times "journalist" Bill Sammon (who, not surprisingly, also has a gig with Fox News) has a new book out titled Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters Most recently, Sammon was the tool whose behavior at the most recent White House press conference was so fawning that it's rumored that the True Messiah Himself, Sun Myung Moon gave Sammon a Holy Handkerchief to wipe both his lips and Bush's butt cheeks.
According to the book's inside flap, it "meticulously tracks the rise of the Bush-haters, a disturbing political phenomenon that colors everything from the war on terrorism to the presidential campaign." This from a guy who works for Moon and Roger Ailes--I just don't know where to start.
Thanks to Drudge, Sammon's book is selling well. Drudge also promoted Sammon's book, At Any Cost. The Howler caught Sammon in a Jayson Blairesque distortion (which unfortunately wasn't important to the mainstream media; also click here to read about further misconduct in this case). Unfortunately I don't have time to read the book. If there's a blogger out there who wants to take a critical look at this book, go for it.
