Falling for the Kennedy photo hoax 

Disillusioned, or perhaps disgusted, erstwhile semi-right blogger Charles Johnson mocks Pamela Geller for having fallen for the JFK-and-the-boat-full-of-nude-hotties picture and then having deleted her post. Fair enough, an apparent violation of the increasingly quaint blogger's tradition of owning up to one's mistakes. But -- friendly observation -- non-right wing Andrew Sullivan seems to have done essentially the same thing.

CWCID: Glenn Reynolds.

A sad statement on the current condition of the Democrat Party.

Kennedy would have been ruined by appearing on the same yacht as a skinnydipper.

Clinton gets a lube job in the Oval Office with his wife upstairs, blatantly lies about it, invades a foreign country to distract the media...and it's business as usual.

No wonder these guys think it's OK to show up drunk on C-Span.

We've come a long way, baby!!!

I wouldn't go anywhere near talking about the likes of Charles Johnson, Pamela Geller and Andrew Sullivan. Each are just nuttier than the last.

That's why nobody should be reading Andrew Sullivan. He has the standards of a tabloid and the intellectual honesty of Big Brother. Ann Coulter is miles ahead of him.

Sullivan acknowledges the mistake in and announces he's removing the post. Geller tries to erase history. Why are they the same?

Yes, but... Ever since the comments that Clinton lost his temper during the deposition and then when the tape was released that's all anyone looked for and completely ignored the fact that he lied through his teeth, I've assumed that any story like this is an intentional diversion.
They launch a story like this as a diversion, allowing them to claim that the next Kennedy and naked ladies picture must also be a fake. Wasn't it awfully easy to refute the first picture? Playboy? Never forget how shifty these guys and their PR types are!!!
