Liberal Blog Twists Bob Grant Issue Into Partisan Attack
Lefties Spin Grant Award Spat, Ignore Truth
A major lefty blog has decided to use the Bob Grant lifetime achievement award withdrawal flap for partisan spin purposes, with laughably dishonest results.
And in order for Think Progress to make the smear piece work, they actually ignored similar praise for Grant’s legacy coming from their own side of the fence. How’s that for political sleaze?

its tough to find anything as comical as the daily kos, stink progress, andrew sullivan, and the huffington post to get denialist garbage humor from.
Busted by the Daily Kooks and Stink Progress. Scary stuff.

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Booby prize edition

And today’s prize boobies are…
Matthew Yglesias of Think Progress, for getting Honduras and Ecuador mixed up. Just because they both grow bananas for the Yew Ess of Ay, is no reason for a so-called foreign policy expert to flunk geography. Or to misspell “daft”, come to that, because a coup in Honduras IS a big deal to Hondurans and their friends abroad, and to handle it (or mishandle it) as Obama & Co. did, is daft as a Bush. At this rate, Think Progress will be called Stink Progress.
