So right after our new favorite regular Fox News contributor Glenn Greenwald got done talking about how awesome Megyn "Santa-Is-Obviously-White" Kelly is, he decided to attack Democrats for attacking Rand Paul's flip flop on aid to Israel.
His tweet can be found here:
The direct quote:
"Here, @TheDemocrats seem to be attacking Rand Paul for the crime of once advocating cuts in aid to Israel"
Um, no, they are not attacking his former position. For once, many Dems actually want to start having a debate about whether we should be funding weapons used to kill children. But if Greenwald did ANY research at all, he would realize that Democrats are attacking the fact that Rand Paul is now denying that he ever held such a position. It's almost as if doing simple research is boring and tedious to Greenwald, which is not surprising given how sloppy much of his Snowden reporting was and how much he prefers to criticize Democrats over Republicans. He could be attacking the hundreds of elected Republicans who attack any mention of cutting aid to Israel as "anti semitism." But instead, he attacks Democrats for doing something they never did.
Greenwald's favorite line that "Democrats liked me more before Obama was sworn in" is certainly true. But that was before he turned into a tired old hack constantly auditioning for a spot in the Fox News lineup. He is no different than Ron Fournier screaming that because both parties hate him, he must be right.
And anyway, since we are talking about people holding positions that they later deny they ever held in the first place, how about a friendly reminder that Greenwald supported the Iraq war and later denied it.
