94. Yes, I do believe that if the Dems had been serious about bringing in
witnesses to back up her testimony, it would have been done. I'm disgusted that in spite of everything, the NYT can still get away with writing such a slanted story on her - emphasizing that she in a group that opposes Bush (implication: she must be LYING!) and citing unfounded, nameless hearsay from the Republicans that a couple of people who were in the area and should have heard something, didn't. (see the NYT article excerpt and comments on it upthread.) The Repubs are saying "this stuff never happened" and are being allowed to get away with it.

There are so many lies in this administration on a daily basis, it's easy for them to pretend to not recognize the truth.

And the three major US newspapers? Only the LA Times gave a fairly balanced report of the accusations, including Ms. Townsel's. The NYT gave a biased account implying her accusations were lies. And the Wash Post editorial said there wasn't a good reason to deny Bush his candidate. Well, at least we got one out of three.
