How we all went Crazy
Mostly, for refusing to fight back


There is almost no downside if you want to make an extreme claim about Barack Obama.
You generate outrage from the left but you get attaboys from the conservative base.

Is this different than the rewards that liberals got for making extreme claims about legitimate charges against Fuhrer Bush?

I think it is, because the conservative media -- Fox, talk radio, all the way down to forward e-mails -- is a fantastic
transmission device whose consumers are ready to believe that the rest of the media is lying to them. There is really
no downside for Frank Gaffney when he says that Obama or his nominees are bringing radical Islamic law to America.
It gets to the conservative base, which makes it a "controversy," which means that the rest of the media has to cover
this Very Important Issue Americans Are Concerned About.
