Okay. This is a free country. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how asinine. I support, without hesitation, the First Amendment rights of every citizen as much as I support the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney for their comprehensive assault upon our Constitution, but while scanning through the impeachment-related posts early this morning I came across a uniquely vapid piece of writing in the Charleston City Paper, entitled: Behind The Anti-Bush Exaggerations by a thinly veiled Bushie Toadie by the name of Michael Graham.
I’m not going to waste too much of the reader’s time in trying to explain the sort of excrement this marginally sentient barnyard animal scratched into literary existence (click on the above link if you must), but here is what I just posted as the first comment in reaction to his blather:
“Pithy and cute? Yes. Factual and relevant. Hardly.
I don’t have time to bother with responding to too much of this lockstep Neo-Con boot-licking drivel, but I will say this alone:
If you were an actual journalist and not a yellow propagandist, you would have noticed that the Libby trial testimony and evidence (did you bother to read a word of it, or just trust Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter to interpret it for you?) revealed conclusively that Valerie Plame was an active Non-Official cover CIA Intelligence officer when her identity was treasonously revealed (during wartime!) by not just Richard Armitage, but by four individuals simultaneously: Armitage, Scooter Libby, Ari Fleischer and Karl Rove – all likely to have done so at the behest of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush (how will we ever know unless the subpoenas are honored?).
Stop play-acting the role of journalist and just come out and admit: “I Michael Graham, am a Republican/Neo-Con/corporate shill, with no ability to decipher, nor interest in discovering actual facts from within the miasma of distortion issued daily from the White House. I simply regurgitate the pablum I mainline addictively”.
I hope you are at least getting ‘Armstrong Williams’ money, because then you would have at least sold your soul for something of passing, monetary value.”
We can no longer afford to stand by and let these types of drooling, diseased loyalists poison the minds of the American public. Each and every time one more mindless Neo-Con, corporate drone chants out the Bushie mantra, we must respond quickly and decisively. There is no more room for allowing this kind of damaging pseudo-intellectual, non-factual vomit to go unchecked. We must know the facts and demand that those who fancy themselves ‘journalists’ and newsmen and newswomen give heed to those facts.
When they don’t, as Mr. Graham so cavalierly failed to do so, then we must wield the sword of truth and utilize its blade to bring these hollow men and their lies to their knees.
