This morning on the local philly NPR station whyy's talk show
the first segment had these two academic "pollsters" who sure sounded to me that they were disseminators of propaganda more than anything else. In rapid succession I was treated to:
-The Dems were the anti-VietNam war party (LBJ?, Scoop Jackson?)
-The Dems suffered in elections from being perceived as the anti-VietNam war party (Jimmy Carter?)
-the Iraq war is not all about oil (suuuure!)
-a precipitous withdrawl from Ira would be a disaster
-there were millions killed BECAUSE of our precipitous withdrawl from ViewtNam.
These assholes were so brazewn in their misinformation that I was stunned. Fox news is less in-the-tank than NPR is these days.

Just wanted to say I appreciate the comment on NPR's "interview" with Douglas Feith the other day. Truly an appalling performance by the NPR host.

The softball questions he lobbed to Feith were beyond the pale. The question that we ought to be asking about Feith, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush, and the rest is: Why aren't these guys in the dock for war crimes?
