CNN's revisionist history du jour
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 05:42 PM by monobrau
From "Clinton stumps for Davis"
http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/09/14/california.re...

We get this little gem:
"The recall was triggered by voter anger over the state's economic and energy woes."

Now anyone who's been paying attention knows that this recall was triggered by right-wing car alarm millionaire Darrel Issa, at the behest of GOP operatives, using paid signature gatherers out of his own pocket.

Shoving Issa out of the way was a stroke of brilliance, as his involvement would get in the way of the idea that this is some kind of grassroots movement.

Thank God for that liberal media. </sarcasm>

1. good catch
Letting them get away with lies like that is how the unilateral withdraw of weapons inspectors before airstrikes in '98 became "Saddam kicked them out."

2. They never planned to let Issa carry the ball..Updated at 5:52 PM
He was a chump for buying into their scam, hence the tearful charade when he dropped out.. They screwed him, and he just walked away like a whipped puppy..

3. I still want Issa to foot the election bill.
It's only fair.
