We’ve done an in-depth report on Lansdale’s fraudulent appearances for McCaskill and retired Gen. Wesley Clark, who is running anti-war ads through election day on CNN and Fox News.

McCaskill is standing by Lansdale and his defenders are invoking the Absolute Moral Authority to shield him from scrutiny.


It’s a well-worn ploy for the Dems–attacking Republicans with flawed and fraudulent figures. Bryan Preston has started an Absolute Moral Authority card collection:
