HEWITT: Do you believe that John Kerry took a CIA man into Cambodia and kept his hat? MCAULIFFE: Uh, I have no idea. HEWITT: You have no idea that he made that story to the Washington Post and that he made it again in 2004 to the LA Times? MCAULIFFE: If John Kerry said he did something, I’ll take John Kerry at his word. ... MCAULIFFE: Oh sure, everything matters what people say. Absolutely. George Bush also said that he showed up in the Alabama National Guard and never showed up. HEWITT: You’re still holding that story that he never showed up . . . MCAULIFFE: Hugh, wait a minute. They’ve released the documents and all we’ve got is more questions. He had one dental appointment. Big deal.Yeah, this is a big deal. A very big deal. The Chairman of the Democratic party (who as Captain Ed pointed out, later admitted in this interview that his job is to tell people Kerry's winning no matter what the truth is), is on record as saying that Kerry's uncorroborated stories about CIA hats and watery borders - stories that have been proven to be at best wild exaggerations if not outright fabrications - are to be taken at face value. At the same time, hard evidence that Bush was where he was when he said he was is completely discounted. Get this straight: There's zero proof that Kerry is telling the truth (and a good deal of evidence that he is not) but Chairman Terry believes him. There's hard evidence that Bush IS telling the truth, but Terry still thinks Bush was AWOL in Alabama. I'm tempted to call this a case of typical Democrat double standards. But it's deeper than that. It's a clear demonstration that Democrats really and truly do not believe in objective reality. "My truth" said the gay governor. "I'm an artist" said Michael Moore, when his "documentary" was shown to be riddles with lies. Truth is what you make of it, in Democratland. This is beyond Moore's Disease. That's just irrational hatred, don't-confuse-me-wth-facts-my-mind-is-made-up. McAuliffe is demonstrating a total break with logic and reality. And he's the Chairman of the Democratic Party.
