Too Perfect(ly) Left

Can you imagine the outcry if a conservative hero turned out to be an absolute and total fake and liar? The high-minded denunciations would ring all the way from the television studios in Manhattan to the newsroom of the LA Times. And rightly so.

So how is it that more people don't know about Jesse MacBeth, who falsely claimed to have committed atrocities during a nonexistent stint of military service in Iraq?

Of course not, and their ommissions in the MSM are their main tool of slanting the news...

I'm a lefty - and the story of Jesse MacBeth isn't known by the "broad left". If he is a liar and a charlatan, he certainly wasn't taken up with much gusto by us lefties.

He was taken up by for far left groups.

If he's broken the law and is a liar, then I have no problem with him being thrown into the slammer.

Honestly, the only place I ever heard of this guy was on right-wing blogs. As far as I know -- and I read most of the big lefties -- he was never considered a "hero" of the left.

The right might as well attack Michael Moore again - as if that guy has any respect amongst lefties...
