Misdirection 101posted by Jazz at 2/25/2005 09:47:00 AM
NOTE: YOU ARE VIEWING AN ARCHIVED POST AT RUNNING SCARED'S OLD BLOG. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW BLOG HERE.
You can see another example of this again today at Betsy Newmark's Blog, where she uses the same tactic as many other right wingers on the Guckert story. She continues to preach that the accusations concerning Guckert are about the fact that he's gay and people shouldn't be making "fair game of his sex life." Of course, this has nothing to do with the actual story and why people are upset about it and calling for an investigation.
Also, please take a look at my response in her comments section on that one. It will save me the time and finger agony of saying it yet again here.
