Terry Krepel, helping the right understand the difference between (a) truth and (b) lies for six years
For what motive? Everyone in the world knew that he was a sexual degenerate. I'm not particularly connected and I heard that forty years ago. There might have been some innocent church-goers in Palmetto country who didn't know but knowing what gossips church-goers are I highly doubt it.
Is the idea that they were going to undercut him because he was a doddering idiot? Everyone knew that too.
Jeesh! Is there no lie that conservatives aren't going to tell?
Given time, no.
In this case, though, I think the story of eavesdropping on Thurmond may be true. The whistleblower, Margaret Newsham, was credible enough to appear on 60 Minutes. Take a look at the interview which is, alas, on the Freak Republic.
