As the late Molly Ivins used to say, "Crow eaten here." Karl Rove's grandfather wasn't a Nazi -- really. Democratic Underground retracted the story, which was apparently just a rumor that was widely circulated on the Internet.
But, I didn't report it as fact, now, did I? Here's a link to my post.
I wrote, "Judge for yourself." This is how the game is played.
As Mark Twain wrote, "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
I'm retracting the story, for what the retraction is worth. Some damage has already been done, perhaps.
Now I'm waiting for a whole lot of retractions from the other side. Like, about how Obama's Asia trip was supposed to cost the taxpayers $2 billion, and about Bill Clinton's tarmac haircut. And about how Bush is supposed to have actually won the 2000 popular vote, based on a blatant math error from Michigan election returns?
Get the picture?
