Another Coward Hides Behind Fake Name to Hurl Smears
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Right-wingers love to hide behind anonymity to hurl their smears, don't they?

Already in the past month we had one coward, "Jonah Knox," slime Obama at Accuracy in Media. AIM loved his cowardly sleaze so much that it posted a radio interview with the alleged "Knox."

Now, WOrldNetDaily has embraced another coward, "Frank J. Bleckwenn," whom it admits is "the pen name of an attorney in Washington, D.C." This time the smear victim is Elena Kagan; in a July 17 WND column, "Bleckwenn" portrays what Kagan purportedly say in her Supreme Court confirmation hearing were she administered "truth serum."

When you hide behind a fake name, you can lie and smear all you want. And that's what "Blackwenn" does, falsely portraying Kagan as a socialist because "You can see that from my senior thesis at Princeton and from my subsequent expression of sympathy for a 'more leftist left.'" That, of course, is false.

So "Bleckwenn" isn't just a coward, he's a liar too. Which makes his cowardice somewhat understandable.
