    'Deep down'?

    Magic Dolphin Lady can communicate with the dead AND read minds?

    She's as wrong about her history as she is about math and statistics and numbers guys and gals who are competent and fact-based.

    I keep waiting for these people to slip in that LBJ liked to beat his dog, JFK hated black people, and Robert Kennedy secretly laughed at the poor's plight, you know, 'deep down'.

    There are no consequences in our political media for conservatives. None. A liberal who gets uncivil too often, or maybe even accidentally lets slip and swears on tv might be banished for life, but you can make shit up freely... if you are a Movement Conservative Republican.

    The Swiftboat Liars will be back, and Peggy will be fine with that, if and/or when Sen. John Kerry gets an Obama administration invitation for whatever position. Susan Rice will be slimed as if she was with the terrorist thugs that killed our ambassador if and when she gets a secretary of state nod.

    And nobody will lose their job for that shit.

    I wish her, and her ilks, lack of respect for facts was a scandal.

    But if it isn't a scandal that she can say whatever the fuck she wants, even if it almost always comes straight out of her colon, and keep her job in print and on Sunday mornings... I doubt the political press is ever going to care that she's no better than Dick Morris or no more an asset to our discourse than Orly Taitz, she's just smart enough to obey the civility rules.

    I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
