Friday, February 20, 2009's Amanda Carpenter Sneakily Spreads Myths by Telling Us How Right Wingers Think

It was fun to watch David Shuster keep the facts in the forefront, as's Amanda Carpenter tries desperately to water them down with pure conservative fiction.

While David Frum accuses the GOP of being brain dead, dumb, for it's blind opposition to President Obama's stimulus plan, Carpenter only adds to the idiocy by claiming the criticism is a little harsh.

She immediately dredges up the paranoid rights fear that the 15-member Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research will be big government telling doctors to deny life saving medical care. Rationed health care basically. It's really an information service for doctors, but that's beside the point. Shuster interrupts Carpenter to correct the misinformation, eliciting this response, "I'm trying to tell you what Republicans are arguing," only to continue to get out the fear mongering talking. They never miss the chance to spread the BS for those whiny victimized right wingers.

No, Amanda Carpenter did not forget to scare everyone over the possibility that ACORN could, if it wanted to, apply for money from the Neighborhood Stabilization Fund. ACORN, ACORN, ACORN.....! Very scary stuff.

Shuster gets the last dig.
