Anatomy Of A Right Wing Myth Part II: Obama Is The Most Liberal Democratic Senator

Howie and I have been talking about one of the RW talking points that will be used against Obama with the much needed help of our very lazy media. " Obama is the most liberal Democratic Senator." The National Journal should issue a retraction and an apology to the Obama camp. You would think that the media could at the very least look at his voting record instead of blindly quoting a right wing leaning publication or maybe---cough---cough---fact check the report. Maybe Howard Kurtz will check into this story. He does online chats on the WaPo occasionally so go ask a question if you have the chance and see when he's doing one. Anyway, to back up Howie's point from earlier today, here's an example of a right wing propagandist using the GOP's lie to go after the independent voters. I give you The Weekly Standard's: Fred Barnes. You go Fred and lie, lie, lie.

Barnes:...and never mentions that he has a completely...has the number one liberal voting record in the Senate.
