« Metaphor Near-Misses | Main | Trayvon Martin Case - A Partially Parallel Shooting In Alabama »

April 23, 2012



I need a list of acceptable sources for "the right" in rumor generators - or at least an exclusion list. Otherwise we land in the 'no true Scotsman' argument. We're looking for right-wing equivalents of MSNBC? I'm stumped.




200 posts too late maybe, but what about Silky Pony's love child? That one kicked around the blogosphere for a long time and was totally ignored by MSM until the tabloids blew it open.

Of course it was true story, I get that, but it was basically rumor for a long time. BTW, a bizarre factoid for connoisseurs - Rielle Hunter's original name was Lisa Druck, and while she was still Lisa Druck she was portrayed in fiction in two (!) best-selling novels, Story of My Life by Jay McInerney and Glamorama by Bret Easton Ellis. Talk about weirdness overdrive. Edwards really, really was unfit for any position of responsibility.

*Kim has the biggest BS detector in every known sector. (When it swings, it rings...)

*Kim has *never* embedded lies or indulged in douchebaggery. ("Hockey puckey" is for AGW.)

*Cleo's lies are continuous and his vulgarian abuses legend. Who cares who is sez he is today,yesterday or tomorrow?
Pfui, Teifi!

"Edwards really, really was unfit for any position of responsibility."

Many of my neighbors felt he fit the bill perfectly and signed on early.

AliceH - how about the early story, kicked about on the right, about a tape with Michelle talking about "Whitey"? Of course, it could have been started by the Chicago PR group.


I think the story that Obama was born in Kenya fits the tab--and there's some phony African paper that printed up that and similar Nativity tales.

I'm not sure about the rest of the Obama birth story but that one is not likely to be true nor that "newspaper" legit.

For my part, I just wanna hear bubu on the broken nose.

From the AP:

"Orlando, Fla. - The Sanford city commission rejected the resignation of the police chief harshly criticized for his handling of the Trayvon Martin case. The commissioners voted 3-2 Monday to reject the resignation of Bill Lee. The majority blamed the uproar surrounding Martin's death on outsiders."


Great news about Lee!

I don't know if it's been posted yet but GZ's arraignment has been set for May 8.


i"m so glad to hear that about Bill Lee.



Hope the Sanford City Commissioners each have concealed carry permits.

"i"m so glad to hear that about Bill Lee."

A community just says "no" to lynch mobs.


I got a glance at the new Latell book, which
apparently started as a debunking exercise,
but actually refined the argument,

Nice gem: Earth Day rally in D.C. Draws a throng estimated to be between 40 and several hundred.


Frau - I don't think I knew that one. In fact, I have an amazing ability to be blithely unaware of all sorts of rumors, gossip, and innuendo. At my old job, the rule was "If Alice has heard it, it's not a rumor it's a fact".


These aren't the droids you're looking for;



'we really dodged a bullet'
