HEADLINE: RIGHT-WING BASTARDS TRY TO SMEAR PATRIOT KERRY

Filed under: Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 10:35 pm

On page A24 of today’s local Los Angeles Dog Trainer, the intrepid reader can find a story titled Vietnam War-Era Photo Seen as a Bid to Tarnish Kerry.

Can you imagine the nerve of those right-wing bastards?! Trying to tarnish Kerry like that!

Hanoi Jane and “historian” Douglas Brinkley quickly step in to provide quotes about what a travesty this is. The focus of the entire story is, of course, how the GOP is trying to smear Kerry.

This sort of spin is predictable. But at least the Dog Trainer shows you the photo, right? After all, the whole story is about the photo. They can’t run a whole story about the photo, and not show you the photo. Right?

Wrong.

But I’ll show it to you.

I WOULD NEVER INVOLVE MYSELF IN A SMEAR CAMPAIGN — UNLESS I NEEDED TO

Our local Dog Trainer reports here that the guy running against Supervisor Yvonne Braithwaite Burke was found liable in a police brutality case. Burke’s reaction?

I’m not going to get involved in a smear campaign, because I don’t think I need it.

You have to admire her, uh, honesty.

GUESS THE DICTATOR AND/OR TELEVISION SIT-COM CHARACTER

Stop what you are doing and immediately play Guess The Dictator and/or Sit-Com Character. If you don’t laugh out loud several times in amazement, your money will be cheerfully refunded.

So far, it guessed my sit-com character three times out of four. I haven’t tried a dictator yet.
