We hope you’ll be able to help: Just like that, we’re half-way through our third non-annual fund-raising drive!
In the past few days, we’ve seen the war that’s being conducted about our recent history.
In Wednesday morning’s Washington Post, Melinda Henneberger wrote this piece. The headline, right on page A2: “Let’s not give Romney the Al Gore treatment.”
Can we talk? The vast bulk of the public has never heard that there’s any such thing as “the Al Gore treatment!” That very same day, Jacob Weisberg posted this horrible piece at Slate, trying to keep them deceived. (For fuller treatment, see post beow.)
Henneberger started telling a secret about her own guild’s past misconduct. Weisberg is working very hard to keep you barefoot and clueless.
In our view, future generations will need to know the history of the Clinton-Gore years. They will need to read and understand Gene Lyons’ Fools for Scandal. They will need to read and understand Lyons and Conason’s The Hunting of the President.
They will also need to understand what happened in the war against Gore. That twenty-month war sent Bush to the White House.
The future deserves to know.
If we were rolling in dough, we wouldn’t ask. But we aren’t, and we hope you’ll consider a contribution. If you’re feeling suggestible today, you know what to do: Just click this.
Over at our companion site, our newly-posted Chapter 6 describes the Love Canal episode of December 1999. During that astonishing episode, the theme that Candidate Gore was a LIAR hardened, then turned to stone. Chris Matthews played a leading role in this episode, as he did in so many others.
Today, his keister is kissed by corporate players—by people who tell you they’re working hard on your high-minded “liberal” team.
We’ll only suggest that you read Chapter 6, with many disgraces to follow. This is the way George Bush reached the White House.
The future will need to know.
