Innocent until proven guilty

Because they’re white, republican. But I repeat myself.

Don’t miss this scathing piece blasting both conservaturds and their asshole buddies in the so-called liberal media, from the BradBlog:

”[J]ust imagine the years of outrage and endless repetition of the charges from the rightwing media and their acolytes --- folks like Crazy Andy --- that would accompany four operatives allied with the Democratic Party, perpetrating a scheme to dress up as phony telephone company employees in order to access and manipulate the phone system in the office of a sitting Republican U.S. Senator.

“Of course, it would be the Crime of the Century to the wingnuts, likely led by Breitbart, accompanied by cries of "What did Obama, Pelosi, Reid, ACORN, SEIU and Saul Alinsky know and when they did they know it?!" along with calls for resignations in disgrace because of it.

“But when the ‘Liberal MSM’ report on a very serious federal felony offense allegedly committed by four Republicans disguising themselves and attempting to interfere with the phone system of a sitting Democratic U.S. Senator, well, that's just another example of the outrageously ‘Liberal MSM,’ at least according to Breitbart and O'Keefe's latest attempted gambit.

“That's the embarrassing meme that the rightwing propagandist and GOP operative Breitbart is busy Twittering himself to death in hopes of selling, as he desperately tries to reclaim any credibility that he or his GOP ‘news’ outlets might have ever had.

“And given the rubes and dopes in the Not-Liberal-At-All MSM, it's likely they'll fall for it as hard as they fell for Breitbart/O'Keefe's ACORN video scheme. Case in point: The ‘liberal’ New York Times is already running a fawning 2,250-word feature story on Breitbart and his gang of desperados in Sunday's paper. Can you imagine any such coverage of accused Democratic Party criminals like that?! And the GOP outrage that would accompany it if it did?!”
Ohhhhh yeah. We’d never hear the end of it. Never in a million years.
