Oxymoron Alert: compassionate left.

The way you say "Behold, the compassionate left!" reminds me of the opening to many episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. ATHF is the funniest late nite cartoon in existance.

You sure you aren't related to Dr. Wierd?

I am amazed some of those cretins used their real names. At least it looks that way. I thought the one from Jan Falk, who is supposed to be a mental health professional in Virginia, made herself appear irony challenged.

The vitriol is, sadly, completely predictable.

What's disturbing is they found out about her site before she even created it. How did they do that? Can they scan the registars for key words like "Murtha"? What a bunch of disturbed maniacs.

I imagine it's rather easy to do. Besides it's quite possible that word got out from the people on the registrar's side.

Also, Amanda Doss is quite hypocritical here. I don't know the merits of creating such a site, but to pretend to be shocked by the email that you receive after doing so is just tiresome. There's so many humor sites that do hate email better. I really don't see the value she adds.

she doesn't have to add value!! Do any of us really "add value" blogging, posting, opining on these sites?

All she has to do is be truthful in her statements about Murtha. It's not hard to make him look bad just using his own words. She has a constitutional right of free speech that says she can say whatever she wants.

But just like what I said about Weird Chuchill a few articles above, you can say whatever you want about anyone. But be prepared to get sued if you commit acts of libel. This young lady did not do that as far as I can find.

My understanding Churchill is being fired for plagerism, not libel.

If Amanda Doss is committing libel for saying Murtha lied, then what exactly is the anonymous coward doing when he insists 3 years after the fact that Bush lied.

As far as libel goes, what about Murtha reporting that the Haditha Marine's are guilty prior to trial, or suggesting that Marine officers gave Murtha that information?
