Cognitive Dissonance

To say that the accusations made in both documents are not substantiated by the evidence they offer is to be overly polite and diplomatic about it. It is far better, and more accurate, to talk straight: These allegations about Huma Abedin, and the report from which they are drawn, are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American, and a loyal public servant.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) putting the smackdown on Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) for baseless attacks on Secretary Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin.

Joe McCarthy Michele Bachmann essentially accused Abedin of working on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood to inflitrate the U.S. government, and released an odd, 16-page letter in defense of her witch-hunt against Muslim Americans. Said witch-hunters also include Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Thomas Rooney (R-Fla.), and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.).

Sen. McCain, bravo. I’d buy you a beer if you’d just disown famed Islamophobe Frank Gaffney completely. Here’s video of him taking Bachmann to task:
