View from the other side

So the interesting thing about the story discussed below is that, in gathering some of those links, I came across the rightwing view, which - surprisingly - is somewhat different. In rightwingland, 60 Minutes would never allow a Republican to rebut allegations against him (because we all know that 60 Minutes' trademark technique is not having Mike Wallace interview an increasingly squirmy accusee in front of the camera. No, it's all stab-in-the-back stuff). Furthermore, the fact that CBS was planning to run a 20 minute piece with the ex-head of the FBI calling Bill Clinton everything short of a traitor proves nothing; what is telling is that, under pressure, they allowed Sandy Berger rebut the claims. In that they find liberal bias.

I mean, seriously, what is wrong with these people?

Actually, that question was rhetorical until I got to Dr. Sanity's site, the top of which is dominated with an extremely creepy flash sequence about 9-11. I mean, serious rightwing beatoff material - multiple images of the WTC being hit, the aftermath, eeeevil muslims, and, of course, Dear Leader. It really is the most important thing in their world, isn't it? Of course, if you're from Ann Arbor, it would have been quite a searing experience....
