Keep Chuckin’ Those Facts


Clearly, anyone who is more concerned with arbitrary executive authority than Ben Wittes must be lying.

  • Well, maybe Robert Chesney can make that claim

    no surprise, politifact has an unfortunate history of doing the least possible fact-checking, before making its pronouncements. one should take anything they say with caution, and check their facts. of course, one should do the same with pretty much anything.

    Wow, a fight between Politifact and Glenn Greenwald. Can’t they both be wrong?

    • +1

    • Polifact rates your comment a “mostly true.”

      Glenn Greenwald working on a nine page piece on your ideological unreliability and naivete.

      • Bill Murray

        but Greenwald does nothing but win

          It’s all he does!

          He just. Wins. Arguments.

          • Right, let’s just ignore the fact that he’s mostly gotten lucky against a bunch of weak-sauce opponents.

              Honestly, it’s the defense and special teams that give him such good field position.

              Well, but when people get lucky and win with no discernable basis, that just shows that them winning was the will of god!

              That was Romney’s plan in 2012 and yet he seems to have screwed that up.

              How is David Horowitz doing these days?

                How is David Horowitz doing these days?

                Hey, now. That’s a bit unfair. Sure, Ho’zer’s arguments are weak-sauce, but that didn’t make him a weak-sauce opponent. A weak-sauce opponent (1) doesn’t get state legislatures to take his complete horseshit seriously, and (2) doesn’t give off a vibe of being about to go for your eye with a tobacco knife. On the other hand, the Most Dangeral Professor seemed to be able to interact very cordially with Ho’zer one-on-one, so perhaps the sauce contains only a little bit of liquor … sort of like Professor Bérubé himself [Drum roll, cymbal sting].

                • Thanks, mds. But it’s true that a competent, intelligible Horowitz would have been a more formidable foe.

    Even the liberal Brookings Institute …

    • Hogan

      My thought exactly.

      • Kurzleg

        Soon it will be “even the liberal George W. Bush.”

      Brookings and Hoover? What a weird concoction of bullshit
