Blah-Blah Happens

Media Matters and others are doing the frantic Dance of Indignation because of an image going around the intertubes. (top one) Why? Because those lying, lying, liars at Fox News identified Stanford as a "D" instead of an "R". (which, btw, didn't CNN identify Spitzer as an "R" a month or so ago? Never mind - that was a typo, this was deception) Anyway those lying liars almost fooled the country into thinking that a Democrat had an affair and was therefore going to resign his post as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Ah whatever.

But there may be a flag on the play. The only YouTube I can find of the press conference shows Fox identifying him as an "R". (see second image) Now, I could accept that one Fox affiliate may have gotten it wrong... it's possible. But also, it should be pointed out that photoshopping a change like that is ridiculously easy:

Here I've made him a member of the Stupid party. (S) Which, R or D, is really where he belongs.
