What to do when the facts don't fit your dogma?

Why, you make it up, of course!

First with the MSM moonbats it was Rush Limbaugh uttering things he'd never say (because, after all, Rush just has to be a racist despite the bogus quotes attributed to him). Now, it's a history revision along the same lines -- Republicans must be racist even though, well, they weren't:

Maddow: Let me ask you about the statistic I attributed to you in my intro there - I know you have been doing some digging on this issue - of a Democrat joining a Republican filibuster. How, how unprecedented would a move like this be for Senator Lieberman?

Hamsher: Well, we have seen a number of the other party cross overs…well we remember the Dixiecrats joining the Republicans in the sixties on civil rights filibusters … (Link.)

A little history lesson for Ms. Hamsher:

In the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

Maybe Hamsher ought to examine her own racial prejudices. After all, she's the cretin who superimposed blackface on a photo of Joe Lieberman during his campaign against Ned Lamont in 2006.

It is indicative of the ignorance of Hamsher that she said it and of Maddow that she didn't challenge eit.

But then again, one has to be woefully ignorant to be a contemporary-style liberal.
