    Democrats: We don't need no Stinking Facts!

    Think I am full of it? Check this out. This is a US Congressman. Not some partisan hack. Or at least, not just a partisan hack. This kind of behavior is simply unbelievable. A US Congressman accuses the White House of perpetrating a vast conspiracy against the US media, and has absolutely no proof to back up the claim, only it takes him twice to admit as much. The comments section at LGF is full of great quotes, I suggest reading it as well.

    Update: Set link to no comments version. Apparently Instapundit has picked this up. It will be interesting to see if this gets any further.

    Update 2: I got to thinking...

    The Congressman initially tells the LGF Operative that he did, in fact, have evidence. Later he admits this isn't' true. Why would he do such a thing? The only logical possibility that comes to mind is that he said he had evidence initially to shut the questioner up. The Operative was ruining the moment, if you will. He was on a roll, denouncing the evil Republicans, and Karl Rove in particular. The intent wasn't to lie, I think, it was to get the questioner to be quiet. Facts and evidence would only get in the way of his convictions. Ironically, this says a lot more about Congressman Hinchey than first meets the eye. He certainly isn't a "just the facts" kind of guy.
