Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

And Sometimes The Universe Smiles

A fascinating tactic has characterized right wing media groups in the Obama years: doctored video.  Mostly associated with Breitbart's Mausoleum of Otherwise Unemployables and bottom-feeding sewer dweller James O'Keefe, this tactic recently surfaced with regards to Planned Parenthood and their disposal of fetal tissue after abortion.

Governor Greg Abbot - the latest troglodyte coughed up by the fever swamps of Texas conservatism - demanded an investigation of whether Planned Parenthood was selling fetal tissue in violation of the law.  Unsurprisingly, given Planned Parenthood's reputation, no wrong doing by this group was found.  However, the idiots who conducted this "video sting" have been indicted.

That's just so perfect on so many levels....
