DOWNING STREET DELUSIONS.

via Kevin Drum: The wingnuts are getting desperate. Captain's Quarters, in a nostalgic attempt to recreate the glories of Rathergate, suggests that the Downing Street Memos aren't real. Why? Because Michael Smith, the reporter who got hold of them, had them retyped to protect his source and then returned the originals.

You know the wingers are desperate when they start banging that drum. I heard CQ on MSNBC say the memo's were from third party sources. As Kevin points out " Mr. Blair did not deny that the meeting took place in July 2002, but he recalled that "subsequent to that meeting, we went the United Nations route," seeking a resolution in November 2002, calling on the Iraqi government to disarm." If the UK can't discredit them during the election, I don't think CQ will be able to. Except of course if they put the pressure on WaPo to say they can't confirm them any more. Then Hugh Hewitts's buddies will start a new website called ConfirmDSNnow.com. This also proves just how afraid the right is of these memos now as the MSM finally jumps on board and starts asking the right questions.

: No doubt this will be the top story on next week's Reliable Sources.
