The big (and probably wrong, in my opinion) story of the day, that the Taliban tried to assassinate Vice President Cheney gathered a lot of typically hateful commentary from the left. Mostly it lamented that the attack had missed. But the full-blown moonbattery at the Huffington Post has been expunged, erased, memory-holed. Apparently, the normal hate-filled screeching over there went a bit over the top with the sanctioning of someone claiming to have tried to kill the man who happens to be one heartbeat away from the Presidency of the United States.
Over the last few hours, the more than 400 comments appended to the Huffington Post’s news item on the attack in Afghanistan on a base being visited by Vice-President Dick Cheney have been expunged from the site. At first the comments were closed, then gradually shrunken and for a short time completely expunged from The Huffington Post as the heat on the Cheney hate fest built up over the day.
But the internet is forever once something is published. Oh darn. The HuffinPuff has ambitions to become a big player in the new media. Their sycophants are not helping at the moment.
