Ponte Hits the Hateful Talking Points
Topic: Newsmax

Lowell Ponte is down with all the hateful right-wing talking points on health-care reform in his Aug. 11 Newsmax column.

Falsely claiming that Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer "accused health reform critics of being 'un-American'" when, in fact, they asserted that "Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American"? Check.

Hypocritically denouncing Pelosi's criticism of Nazi imagery by protesters at town halls whileclaiming that "Obamocracy 2009" has a "chilling resemblance to 1936 Germany"?

Simply making up stuff in claiming that "By age 7, Pelosi was already accustomed to demanding political payoffs in telephone calls with those needing her father's favors"? Check. Making up more stuff in claiming that Barney Frank and Chris Dodd "threatened and bullied banks into making millions of home loans to NINJAs, people with No Income and No Job"? Check again.

Needless viciousness in claiming that any plane Pelosi is on is "said to be designated Broomstick One"? Double check.
