Sherman's little invention saves the day . . .
Dinocrat has an interesting post regarding Bill Burkett and the forged "Rathergate" memos. Burkett wrote a rather nasty editorial in the Online Journal, a Leftist online newspaper, in which Burkett said things like "George W. Bush, you may be the president [sic]. But I know that you lied." and "Your command profile, sir, is that you are a liar." Burkett's bio describes him as "one of the sources for information in the Michael Moore's film "Farenheit [sic] 911."
'Nuff said about Mr. Burkett.
Dinocrat then inaccurately states
Much of the information about Rathergate continues to be available online, with one important exception, the actual piece that Burkett wrote for Linda Starr and Online Journal that appeared on August 25. It has disappeared entirely, as this link demonstrates. All that we have now are remnants of the piece . . .Problem is, that ain't quite true due to the wonders of the Wayback Machine.
The Wayback Machine found Burkett's inane article with no problems. If you'd like to take a gander, it is here.
Not that the fact you can still read it online takes anything away from Dinocrat's primary point: the Leftist propagandists at the Online Journal deliberately removed the article from their database, presumably to disassociate themselves from a discredited article, argument and individual.
Not even that makes much sense, though -- I mean, take a look at this article from September 24, 2004, trying to connect George Bush to -- no kidding -- the Kennedy assassinations.
I can't see how they think they might be any less credible with Burkett's rantings than they are without them.
