The RNC web site links to a story (look under: protesters supporting John Kerry) from the New Hampshire Union Leader about the perils facing delegates when they come to New York for the Republican National Convention. Included in the linked-to story:
NEXT WEEK, people who hate Republicans plan to release swarms of mice in New York City to terrorize delegates to the National Republican Convention.
Republican-haters plan on dressing up as RNC volunteers, and giving false directions to little blue hair ladies from Kansas, sending them into the sectors of New York City that are unfit for human habitation.
They plan on throwing pies and Lord knows what else at Republican visitors to the city. Prostitutes with AIDS plan to seduce Republican visitors, and discourage the use of condoms, according to liberal journalist Ted Rall...
Apparently there are some liberal blogs and web sites that are promoting the above information as proof that the GOP are idiots. Of course they are, but for a different reason. The "liberal journalist" mentioned above can be none other than the Ted Rall. Of course the name Ted Rall (emphasis above, mine) is synonymous with biting political cartoons that I'm sure you've seen.
The Union Leader printed this story in apparent seriousness and the GOP linked to it thinking it was something to be up in arms about. For Rall to get quoted as a journalist in this fashion is just as funny as one of his cartoons.
