When You Don't Have A Good Smear Story, Make One Up - Ben Smith

Courtesy of Dan Riehl at Riehl World View:

It's a damn shame that quasi-journalists such as Ben Smith have to fabricate smear pieces on one of the few seemingly decent politicians we have in the system.  But as you are aware, Liberals believe anything Conservative is linked to racism, homophobia, war, blah blah blah.  We also know a Liberal wonk never lets truth be an impediment to writing a hit piece.

Another case of a journalist not being satisfied with accurately reporting the news, but rather, trying to himself be the news.  I refuse to link the guy and give him hits, so read it below or find it on Google...

Michigan Rep. Thaddeus McCotter gave a shout-out to the old South in his address to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans earlier this month.

"It's been a pleasure to be in your presence, of the the Republicans of the South, who will help us all rise again," McCottter said, concluding his speech. "Build the party, trust the people, save the country."
"The South Will Rise Again" is a slogan associated with the Lost Cause of the Confederacy, controversial enough to have led the University of Mississippi last year to discourage sports fans from chanting it.
