Lawrence O’Donnell and liberals unhinged

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 22, 2004 10:42 PM

Something unbelievable just went down on MSNBC’s Scarborough Country. Lawrence O’Donnell screamed at John O’Neill for two segments as substitute host Pat Buchanan hopelessly tried to moderate.

Maj. Bud Day (Bert V. Goulait, Washington Times) The Washington Times and RedState have previews of the latest devastating ads from the Swift Boat Vets, which will feature 90 veterans who oppose John Kerry, including Medal of Honor recipient Bud Day.

The blogosphere has been teeming with great stuff on the Swift Boat Veterans, Kerry’s Vietnam War record, and related matters. A few that stand out: Captain’s Quarters.
