Happy hour for bullshit

March 17, 2004

I've been pretty thoroughly disgusted at the right-wing pundits who've been calling the Spanish people Al-Quaeda appeasers (Jonathan Freedland writes eloquently about it in the Grauniad here). The fact is that the PP tried to manipulate a national tragedy for political gain and the Spanish people called them on it. They did not "vote for Osama bin Laden", fools.

On a lighter note, I've also been rather amused by Donald Rumsfeld getting flustered on Face the Nation. Face the fucking facts more like, eh Rummy? (You'll need Windows Media Player to view the clip).

Yup, the tone of the reporting, even by the BBC, was nauseating and fully on a par with 'cheese-eating surrender monkey' reasoning. If Al-Qaeida won the Spanish election, then surely a Bush win in the coming presidentials can also be tracked back to those nice jihadists giving the US incumbent the moral high ground by committing Sept. 11 in the first place.
