Bill Bennet Sheep Mollester
Viewers of the Republican Debate postgame show got treated to a textbook Drudge/GOP smear courtesy of Bill Bennett with an assist from Anderson Cooper.
Asked about Romney's answer about his previous statement that he looked forward to the day gays would serve openly, Bill claimed the answer was good and immediately changed the subject by stating that he had gotten a bunch of emails that the man who asked the original question was a member of Hillary Clinton's steering committee. Of course, Bennett wasn't saying he was, just that he was getting emails. And instead of calling that BS out Cooper suggested that he didn't know that and it should have been disclosed.
This kind of smear is horrible because even if proven false, the smear will still have a net effect of lowering a voter opinion of the smearer.
Well, I heard Bill Bennett mollests sheep. I am not saying it's true. In fact I perosnally doubt it. But that's what people I won't identify in emails have told me.
