Just when it was looking like I was dead wrong.... I get proven right. And then some.
CNN has reviewed and agreed to run a controversial ad produced by a pro-abortion group’s that falsely accuses Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers supporting a convicted abortion clinic bomber, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.Boo-yah! Score one for disgusting hyperpartisan smear campaigns! In your face, decency and honest debate of the issues!
The news network has agreed to a $125,000 ad buy from NARAL for a commercial which depicts a bombed out 1998 Birmingham, AL abortion clinic. The Birmingham clinic was bombed seven years after Roberts signed the legal briefing the ad question!
However, the non-partisan University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Factcheck.org reviewed the NARAL ad and found it to be “false.” Factcheck.org found "in words and images, the ad conveys the idea that Roberts took a legal position excusing bombing of abortion clinics, which is false."
The ancient Roman gladiators' arena's got nuthin' on the brutality of our Senate confirmation process.
Sigh. I was really hoping I was wrong.
