When Truth (& Relevance) Don't Matter

This piece points out that Democrats have taken more money from lobbyists than Republicans have, over the last 15 years.

The facts belie one of the Democrats' recent attacks -- namely, that Republicans are uniquely and exclusively responsible for a "culture of corruption" in the nation's capital.

But as Daniel Henninger points out, truthfulness (or even the importance of an issue generally) isn't really the point for the Democrats. Their aim seems to be to behave so badly that the electorate votes out Bush and Republicans generally just to be rid of the bickering and controversy.

Obviously, it's a deeply cynical ploy. But it's a game that the MSM (which still has the biggest megaphone) seems all too willing to play.

Will it work come November? It depends -- especially on the perceived level of both the terrorist threat, and the Democrats' competence to address it.

And (as I've pointed out before), Republicans need to make sure that the country knows about the kind of moonbattery Democrats and their ilk stand for (as even today, actor Richard Dreyfuss calls for the President's impeachment). After all, is the body politic really willing to put people into power whose agenda includes trying to impeach the President during a time of war?

Richard Dreyfuss? You mean that lousy actor that hasn't been seen in a good movie in over...wait! Ever.

He's more irrelevant than Mr. Twister. I refuse to waste my time reading their tripe.
