Ohio Right Wing Blogger King Makes Fool of Himself

The right wing blog King's Right Site out of Cleveland today is pushing and ancient quilt by association story about something called the New Party in Illinois.

I know very little about the New Party but it doesn't matter. What I do know is that Barack Obama has always run as a democrat in every race he has ever run. He has never had an association or sought endorsement from the New Party.

This story originated from a Right Wing Nut Job called Stanley Kurtz. The Chicago Tribune had this to say about this wacko:

"WGN-AM 720 host Milt Rosenberg erred Wednesday night when he had partisan attack dog Stanley Kurtz as his only guest for a two-hour show….Rosenberg, who is himself quite the partisan, tut-tutted right along with Kurtz. It all disguised that Kurtz really had nothing new to add to the insinuations and innuendo in the guilt-by-association portion of the campaign against Obama in which he’s actively engaged.”

The New Party did endorse Obama in 1995 in a run for state senate, Carol Harwell was Obama’s campaign manager for his 1996 bid for state senator. According to Ms. Harwell the Obama campaign did not solicit or seek the New Party endorsement.

Stanley Kurtz has espoused many wacko conspiracy theories including that feminism is the cause of the nursing shortage.

Is amazing to me the laziness of King's Right Site to post a year old debunked story now clearly without seeking any facts whatsoever.

If you want to try guilt by association I'm pretty sure the Klu Klux Klan was way more supportive of John McCain then Barack Obama, does that make McCain a member of the Klan? That is of course a ridiculous assertion and so is the post by King.

The title of his post implies that Obama supporters have been duped. The fact is this President has been actually working to implement every single promise he made in his campaign. No one has been duped. The fact is the right can't deal with the fact the majority of Americans have chosen his policies over the rights.

Why does the "Right" always resort to lies? Because when they debate based on fact, they lose.
