Rather Blather and Bogus Documents
Looks like Dan Rather's big scoop on Bush's alleged "desertion" from Air National Guard duty is totally based on fake documents. Naturally, the PowerLine Boys are all over it.

This is really great stuff. The blogsphere rocks, doesn't it? In less than twenty four hours after the publishing of these "documents", bloggers and their readers have completely blown a hole in the authenticity of these documents and exposed them as the forgeries that they clearly appear to be. And bad forgeries at that. CBS is standing behind their story, claiming that the documents were authenticated by a mysterious, unnamed expert. I wonder how long that BS story will hold up.

I had a good laugh over this one. Somebody is making a fool out of Dan Rather, and that makes me a very happy man.

Update: Little Green Footballs takes his good old MS Word and types out the memos. Guess what. They are exactly the same as the CBS documents. LGF actually superimposes them on top of each other. They are basically identical save for the "aging" of the "original". More of the same here. Yet more here.

Can there be any doubt here? This is delicious. Now we get to watch Rather and CBS squirm.

More Updates: As Powerline points out, even the AP isn't buying this pile of baloney, and if the AP ain't buying it, ain't nobody gonna buy it.

Hugh Hewitt is on the case as well.

Is it just me, or are we Minnesotans just kicking butt in the blogsphere or what?

And of course Scrappleface, in his inimitable way, captures the essence of the whole thing. Now that's funny.

The Hits Just Keep on Rollin': Now, looks like CBS is feeling the heat. Clearly these jokers were so eager to get dirt on Bush that they jumped at these "memos" without questioning them at all. They claim the "documents" were validated by "experts". Pttt. Yeah, right. CBS was schnookered in their zeal to nail Bush. Heck I wouldn't be surprised if this were conservatives that dumped this bucket of turds on Dan Rather's desk. This is just delightful. I am loving every minute of Rather looking like a clown. And you have to know that ABC News loved publishing this story. If I were the other networks, I'd be eating Rather and CBS alive over this. In the end, I think this will be a net good for the President.
