Voting Glitches Result In Voters Turned Away In Myrtle Beach; Bad News For McCain?

I assume, based on the post's conclusion that this is bad for McCain, that Myrtle Beach is a hotbed of RINOism. Eh, every little bit helps.

Meanwhile the Huckster continues following that Golden Rule he believes in with every fiber of his high-fiber-diet being:

ABC's Christine Byun reports: Republican candidate Fred Thompson’s campaign is accusing rival Mike Huckabee’s campaign of more "dirty tricks" in South Carolina.

They say fliers with misleading information about the former Tennessee senator’s abortion record were placed on parked cars at their event venue last night (http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/01/thompson-lets-g.html). The fliers insinuate Thompson voted for funding for abortions through a bill that supported Planned Parenthood. Thompson –- who has received the endorsement of national anti-abortion organization National Right to Life –- did vote for the bill in question, H.R. 3061. However, the bill specifically states that it does not include federal funding for abortions and does not mention Planned Parenthood. The flier quotes Scripture –- Proverbs 31:8 –- and includes a picture of the former Senator.

"Sen. Thompson worked in the Senate to ensure that federal funds did not go to abortion," a Thompson campaign spokesman, who provided a copy of a flier, said.

It's one thing to give a vote a tendentious interpretation. It's another thing to just make shit up out of whole cloth. It's like Huckabee claiming that a highway construction bill Fred Thompson voted for contained a provision making gay marriage not only permissible, but required for all adults.

Yes, Thompson voted for the bill in question. That seems to be the only true claim in the flier. It misrepresents entirely what the bill did.

Mike Huckabee

Because Jesus told him sometimes False Witness is no biggee.
