Eavesdropping deceit from Bush supporters -- Democratic unity over Lamont, Iraq
But adhering to that rule is exceptionally difficult when I read posts like this one from John Hinderaker. The "argument" he advances in the last two paragraphs in order to politically exploit the U.K. terrorist plot is, for reasons I explain here at Salon, nothing other than deliberately deceitful. And it is an "argument" often repeated by numerous right-wing commentators, just not usually in as nakedly deceitful fashion as Hinderaker put it today.
Also at Salon, I have a post examining a new Zogby poll revealing that Democrats are remarkably, perhaps unprecedentedly, united regarding: (a) the defeat of Joe Lieberman, (b) their opposition to the Iraq war and (c) their optimism over their prospects this November. Now matter how much bluster and bravado emanates from the White House, the thing that they fear most is a united and impassioned Democratic Party motivated, at least in part, by opposition to a deeply unpopular, failed war.
