BODY BATTLE II

Iraq Body Count’s Joshua Dougherty continues his pursuit of faith-based Lancet believer Tim Lambert:

I guess when you can’t argue the facts (except to put forward bogus ones distorted to fit your agenda), it’s time to turn to empty ad hominem smears.

Distort, divert, evade, smear. You should write a handbook for propagandists Tim.

Much more on never-wrong Lambert here.

    1. I wonder what the lancet believes the population of Iraq to be?  6 billion?

    1. Somewhat O/T

      BINGO!  BINGO!  BINGO!  BINGO!

      Filed under “terrorist absentee voting trends”

      I’ve been waiting for this!

      New TV ad this morning by the Democratic Senate candidate here in Arizona.  The entire thrust of the add was the “deadliest month in Iraq”.  You can look for this elsewhere in this last week I suspect.  The legacy media( I don’t refer to them as “mainstream”) has been hammering this one quote for all that their worth for a reason other than merely descriptive of events.

      And no, my rant is not over yet.  Thank you very much.

    1. Maybe the Lancet can do a quick study on how many Americans were killed this month to make commercials like this possible.

      And no, my rant is not over yet.  Thank you very much.

    1. What really shits me about this whole deadliest month thing, is that the MSM (MarxStream Media) seems to not count Iraqi’s as people.

      Only Soldiers and Leathernecks seem to count.

      While I’m all for a US serviceman being worth many times that of a ‘splodeydope, surely the (relatively) innocent Iraqi civilians deserve some kind of mention…

      P.S. Lancet doesnt count, thats bullshit and my dog can smell it from here.

    1. If I had a family member killed in Iraq this month I would take a tape of this commercial into the office of one of these people and shove it right up their …!

      There.  That just about does it.  For now.

      Where did “for now” go anyway?

    1. Just one more thing.  Still want to stay home and teach the Republicans a lesson?

      If so, please read Thomas Sowell.

    1. John F’ing Kerry update.

      This was at a campaign stop in Kalifornia over the weekend(via Michele Malkin)

      “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study and do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, can do well.  If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

      So what’s a few more of these poor useless Americans if it can further the Democratic campaign ads for the November elections!

    1. Yep, he said it alright. You can hear it for yourself here.

    1. I didn’t make that up for goodness sake!

    1. I turned Lerch off after “attempt at a botched joke” or whatever it was.  And I thought he was “just tired”.

      What an absolute piece of garbage.  Doesn’t even have the cajones to own up to his own statements.  Not my fault.  Rush made me say it.  How dare people hold me to my own words.  It’s a post modernist world, after all.

    1. And I wasn’t intimating that you did.

      Here’s Kerry’s official statement. It starts:

      Senator John Kerry issued the following statement in response to White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, assorted right wing nut-jobs, and right wing talk show hosts desperately distorting Kerry’s comments about President Bush to divert attention from their disastrous record:

      Assorted right wing nut-jobs—that’s us.

      In other news, Charlie Rangel calls VP Cheney an SOB. He must have forgotton about this.

      (So, is this the Yojimbo and Kyda Show?)

    1. Sadly, it would seem to be.  It’s hard for me to believe, but there it is.  One would certainly think that this subject would generate a great many comments.  It sure has on the DU.

      Maybe I am just overreacting but I heard that new campaign commercial for the Dem candidate this morning with that pat little phrase and just went off.

      It would be hard to convince me that the massive increase in deaths in Iraq was not a planned move on the part of the terrorists to influence the elections. Then here comes this candidate with the same pat phrase the legacy media has been hammering on for most of the month.

    1. Back on topic, I thought the phrase “rat cunning” was a pretty apt description of Lambert tactics.  Or maybe that was “rat droppings”.

      As for Long John, he’s a despicable piece of pig meat.  I hope the cats eat him.

      Even Washington is conceding that one, yojimbo.  You’d have to be a fool not to know that’s exactly what they’re doing.

      Wonder if one of Kennedy’s “friends” went on a little fact-finding mission with a wad of cash and a little “we’ll help you get your message out”, like he did with the Soviets.

    1. Rob

      Not necessary.  They already have CNN on their side.  I believe that they have e-mailed terrorists in Iraq telling them that they would get a fair hearing on their network.  That is how they got the tape of the sniper killing the US soldier I believe.

      Don’t need “Swimmer” spawn when you have the Terrorist Outreach Network at your disposal.

    1. And for some strange reason the falling death toll of US servicemen over x months until October wasn’t news. Hang in there, yojimbo, it pisses me off too. (So much so that I can’t watch CNN or Headline News for more than 30 seconds at a time.)

      Thanks, I’ll do my best.  That commercial I raised in #2 just really got to me although I was expecting something like it.

      Maybe Terrorist Optimization Program and Facilitators might be better.

    1. “empty ad hominem smears…”
      Can’t have that, can we? So no more BushitlerMcChimpyburton?
      I wouldn’t bet on it.

    1. Yeah, I think I will continue taking the “over” on that one.
