Sometime this morning the smell of raw meat wafted past my keyboard. At the time I knew there was something in the air but I couldn’t identify it . . . . .then this slow lumbering softball came creeping toward the batters box.
By the time I got this pitch there were already right wing bloggers saying this was the smoking gun. He admitted it. He’s a MUSLIM We told you . . . blah blah blah. Especially if you shorten it down to just him saying. “My Muslim Faith”. And I’m sure that I’ll hear it on Rush and Sean tomorrow.
I’ve got a message for my brothers and sisters on the right. This is our chance to do the right thing. I understand that you want to hit the Obama Nation with this because of the cowardly and despicable writings on Sarah Palin. You, like me, heard this and your instinct was to pick up this weapon of opportunity and hit them with it screaming “And this is for Bristol!!!”
I want you to resist. I want you to be the bigger man, or woman. First, even if he was Muslim (which he is not) it shouldn’t make a difference AND if you were watching This Week this morning you know what he was trying to say. He actually was trying to pay Big Mac a compliment for not playing the ridiculous Muslim card. Remember that was Hillary!
If you truly want to stand up to the LIES the left wing bloggers are spewing on the electoral battlefield the best way to do it is not spread more lies but to expose their vitriol the the intense heat of research and fact.
As soon as Obama clinched the nomination I knew this battle would be fought in the blogisphere. The Internet revolution has devolved campaigns from a battle of ideas held in the public arena to one held in a pietri dish full of crap. We’ve already seen people make stuff up, atribute it to someone else and then copy it into the COMMENTS on a newspaper website, where it might then be refereced as NEWS. And leftists can then say “well it was on a newspapers website”
These are the tactics of the left. They have used it on each other. We are above this and don’t have to engage them at that level.
Where we can . . . .we should avoid adding to the crap . . . . otherwise we cannot complain about what the Left and their friends in the media are doing.
I found something that embodies the type of dialog I want to have . . . .from of all people Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.
