Where Did I Read That?
A call out to stupid folk
"Clinton is upset about not being able to speak at Reagan's funeral." Where did you read that?
The Drudge Report, that's where, citing one anonymous Clinton inside source. Either that or you read it quoted by idiots who pissed on themselves in their hurry to believe it.
Those who believe this unquestioningly, have you not been burned too many times before? Don't you ever learn?
You cite and you blather about this as if it was fact. Simultaneously most of you also bitch about the media's use of anonymus sources (I'm one of the latter bitchers.)
Try and think of one lefty blog you've read that's approvingly cited comments at the Democratic Underground. I consider that an equivalent.
There's bound to be one out there but you can't think of one right off the bat. And it would take you a long time to find one.
As I've been spouting at other blogger's comments today, Drudge is wrong more than he's right. Half the time people think HE's right, it's a link to someone else's site and someone else's reporting.
The more partisan the post on Drudge Report, the more salt you must carry to pinch.
When you find a report about this that doesn't quote Drudge, let me know.
