Do you have to be insane to be a Democrat today or it is just helpful?
Yesterday Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) hosted a community forum in Ithaca, New York, on The Future Of Social Security.
An LGF operative was present in the audience and happened to be recording as Rep. Hinchey launched into a barking moonbat conspiracy rant worthy of Democratic Underground, telling the audience he believed the fake CBS memos were planted by Karl Rove to discredit Dan Rather, and divert attention from President Bush's "draft dodging."
When our operative asked Hinchey if he had evidence for these charges, he first said, "Yes, I do," but when asked a second time he admitted he did not.
Our operative pressed the issue, "Don't you think it's irresponsible to make charges like that?" Hinchey replied, "No, I don't, I think it's very important to make charges like that ... I think it's very important to combat this kind of activity in every way that you can, and I'm willing, as most people are not, to step forward in situations like this and take risks."
And the crowd burst into applause and cheering.
Charles has a transcript and the audio.
Liberals keep whining that all these nut cases don't represent the party... This guy's a Congressman. The nut cases clearly do represent the party.
