E.J. Dionne: Dreamer Of Dreams Never Dreamed By Father Fact

I watched E.J. Dionne on the conservo blast bash "Meet the Press." During the Roundtable the lies piled high. Rick Santelli tried to speak the truth, but was ignored like the one kid in class that had actually completed his homework. It was E. J. Dionne that won the pointy hat for class dunce though. He spouted outright lies, spun politics like Carville on crack and blustered like a spitting fool.

E.J. Dionne worked himself into such a lather he pre-empted his Monday opinion column without a fact in sight. it was actually interesting to watch the last shreds of decency and journalistic integrity fall away from the tip of his wildly waving finger tips.

Quin Hillyer of the American Spectator takes E. J. Dionne like a cheap suit.

E.J. Dionne, Prevaricator Extraordinaire

E.J. Dionne has not only devolved from a thoughtful columnist into a left-wing hit-man, but he has devolved even further, into the realm of a flagrantly dishonest left-wing hit-man. Today's column contains falsehood after falsehood. First, he says the Sherrod flap grew out of a "doctored video pushed by right-wing hit man Andrew Breitbart." Truth: The video was not doctored (it was an excerpt), and wasn't even excerpted by Breitbard himself. And Breitbart himself used it in a way meant not to attack Sherrod but to note the applause by the listeners, which was a legitimate point. It was the NAACP and the Obama administration that over-reacted; conservatives, to our credit, asked for more context, and also provided fulsome, generous (perhaps even overly generous) testimonials to the unfairness done to Sherrod.

Read the rest for a truly beautiful take down.

E. J. Dionne actually makes the members of Journolist appear to be almost honest.
