And states that in an Obama ad called "Republican women for Obama", there are "four or five women who claim to be Republicans, or have been Republicans until recently."
Sherlock Hinderaker finds that one of them has in fact been a registered Democrat since 2006. You can imagine the outrage.
Except of course he is referring to the one woman in the video who NEVER claimed that she ever was a Republican, the one who said about herself only 'that she had been raised in a very conservative, Republican family.'
In his update, he claims to have another fake "Republican." At least it's true that this woman did claim to have been a Republican. His evidence that she was a fake? That he can find postings indicating that since August 11th she has been doing 'Democrat' type things- things like meeting the First Lady, and liking Rachel Maddow. But if someone claims to have been a former Repubican; to have decided that she can no longer support the Republican Party - is this not exactly what you would expect her to do? Sherlock is outraged that a person totally opposed to Mitt Romney is not listening to Rush?
So Hinderaker's thesis is totally dishonest: one never claimed to have been a Republican,and one is doing exactly what a former Republican would be expected to do.
But on another level the deception is even worse. The post begins by saying that
"It happens all the time... someone "will say that he is a lifelong Republican"... "how he voted for Ronald Reagan" ... then he says that the party's gone to far, and he's voting for a Democrat! These callers are nearly always lying"... they are "likely" Democratic Party Precinct chairman."
This lie is simply absurd. Does Hinderaker really believe that there aren't many Republicans who have left the party? Has he forgotten how often he has posted triumphantly of having driven another RINO out of the party?
Big distinction: Obama's ad is fundamentally, if not totally, true. Hinderaker's post is entirely dishonest.
P.S. As is their standard practice, the usual suspects took Powerline's pack of lies, and injected it with steroids.
Protein Wisdom states that two of the women are "actually registered Democrats." Evidence: None. Lie: Complete.
Of course, Gateway Pundit has to up the ante. Apparently referring to all of the women, he writes:
"There's just one thing.
They're not Republicans
