Shorter Blogging Tory "Paul": "Not long ago, I was absolutely infuriated by self-serving, political dishonesty. Today, eh, not so much."
AFTERSNARK: Notice carefully how Paul so utterly predictably moves the goalposts when he quotes "Gateway Pundit":
The radical left is attacking Bobby Jindal over his story regarding Hurricane Katrina and Sheriff Harry Lee.
The people from Louisiana has heard this story a million times.
The key point to be killed is the radical Left, with Keith Olbermann, claims the story is false because Jindal was not on the ground in New Orleans during the Katrina mess.
** NOT TRUE **
In fact, Jindal was the *only* elected official who was on the ground.
But the majority of us over here on "the radical left" aren't attacking Jindal's claim about being "on the ground." Rather, we are quite clearly and explicitly laughing at his now thoroughly-debunked fable regarding Sheriff Harry Lee and boats -- a fable which even the Jindal camp has admitted was fabricated:
... Jindal's staff now admits that that actually didn't happen. Instead of being there and being part of the story, Jindal's reps now admit that days later Jindal overheard Lee telling the story to someone else. And Jindal retold the story he'd been told while inserting himself into it as part of the story.
Not surprisingly, though, rather than admit that all those radical lefties are correct, Paul simply redefines the claim to make it, technically, accurate: "He was so there! Um ... you know, 'on the ground.' He was! He was! He really was!"
And if he was, well, good for him, Paul, but that's not what we were arguing about, was it? Feel free to rejoin the discussion when you're ready to debate like a grown-up, m'kay?
And that is why we mock them.
