Daniel Larison spent the weekend uncovering the lies that serious, reasonable conservatives tell.
First, John Fund tells a whopper while trying to gin up a “Gillibrand Upset” story. Of course, the notion that Gillibrand’s opponent has any kind of chance is crazy itself. In tomorrow’s New York primary, three Rebublican nobodies will be competing for the honor of being crushed by Gillibrand in November, after all the big names (Rudy 911 and Pataki) bravely ran away.
Then there’s David Frum, who thinks that the country that suffered the worst post-9/11 violence from Islamic extremists was France. Never mind Madrid and London.
Remember, these are the reasonable Republicans, not the teabagger fringe loonies.
