Uh, this isn't another "PoLT's lost it again" posts.
No; but like I was tellin' the babes the other day in an e-mail every time the trolls start slithering through the blogsites (and they're out all over the place), that's the clue to me that the right-wing hate/disinfo/misinfo machine is up and running again in high gear.

The two BIGGEST "smoke and mirrors" stories I've come across lately is the "Astronaut Nowak" fiasco and "John Edwards bloggers" business. Gawd!
