Joseph Farah counts to three…the world holds it breath

It’s hardly worth commenting on (not that that will stop me) but Joseph Farah of World Net Daily ( a Scaife-funded repository for cranks, skanks, and wankers) has a disagreement with Bill Moyers:

I think I have finally met a person who is my polar opposite.

If there were a parallel universe and each one of us had an opposite personality, this fellow would be mine.

This is a guy who is wrong about everything. Even when he’s right, he’s wrong because of his evil motivations.

Who is this man?

It’s Bill Moyers, the political activist masquerading as a journalist and living the comfortable, taxpayer-subsidized life at PBS.

Then he writes this:

Moyers: “That brand of Republican is gone. And for the first time in the memory of anyone alive, the entire federal government – the Congress, the Executive, the Judiciary – is united behind a right-wing agenda for which George W. Bush believes he now has a mandate.”

Isn’t this rich? The U.S. Supreme Court, as currently constituted, according to Moyers, is part of a vast, right-wing conspiracy. The last time I counted the heads on that court, there were three conservatives out of nine. George Bush is a right-winger? The Congress? For the life of me, I can’t name even one right-wing vote in the U.S. Senate – not one.

As they say, some jokes write themselves, and some are written by Joe Farah.

Farah then gets busy making a strawman just so he can set it on fire:

“That mandate includes the power of the state to force pregnant women to give up control over their own lives,” Moyers continues.

Now, I have to assume here that Moyers is referring to abortion – a procedure that undeniably kills one human life usually for the convenience of another. Moyers thinks so little of motherhood that be believes women “give up control over their own lives” when they see a pregnancy through nine months. Moyers would rather see the power of the state used to force people of conscience and conviction to pay for the violent execution of unborn babies on a massive scale. In other words, he would pay for the “liberation” of women with the blood of innocent children.

The fact that Moyers said nothing about “forcing people of conscience and conviction to pay for the violent execution of unborn babies on a massive scale”, doesn’t stop Farah from embellishing the Moyers interview. I mean, why let a few facts get in the way of trying to score points with the slack-jawed yokels. I found it amazing that a man who couldn’t find one “right-wing vote in the U.S. Senate ” could manage to find words that don’t even exist. Guess it depends on where you’re looking….
