UPDATE: One of the "Scrubbed Files" Burkett Saw in the Trash Was "Signed by LTC Jerry Killian" | Main | Typography Expert: Nothing At All "Alleged" About Forgeries
September 12, 2004

O-Dub Throws in One Towel, and Then Another

It's been amusing to me to watch Democratic spinners attempt to claim that "it just doesn't matter if these documents are forgeries" (often simultaneously while demanding that Bush respond to the allegations suggested by the same forgeries).

Oliver Willis offers what is as close to an admission that the documents are forgeries as we're likely to see when he tells us it doesn't matter anyway because no one is paying any damn attention:

So when we all get into these micro-disputes about document kerning (who knew how many typography geeks were blogging!) or exactly what the frigging requirements are for a silver star and why or why not the qualifications were met -- it isn't like this in the real world.

Seems to me that the It-Just-Doesn't-Matter cry is best reserved for the situation for which it was invented, i.e., you're going up against the really good and organized summer camp and you're going to have your ass handed to you.

He also pretty much concedes defeat in the election (too early, I think, but who am I to judge?) by suggesting that maybe 51% of the country just isn't smart enough to elect Kerry president, so maybe the Democrats should take their legislative ball and go home:

To date, its clear that the reality of the Iraq situation and the wounded economy aren't breaking through to the majority of Americans (us 49%ers are sadly, ahead of the curve). The Bush admin is playing all this like a football game, setting things up to expire just beyond the election.

Heaven forbid the Bush admin win a second term, I think the Dems would best serve democracy by simply not cooperating with them in any way, shape or form.

I always enjoy that they're-just-not-smart-enough-to-elect-us whine. It's as welcome, and as predictable, as the coming of autumn and the turning of the leaves.
