I see the wingnutty right continues with its pathetic "kill the messenger, who cares about the message" reality avoidance technique (just as they do with climate change), with the latest nut meme being that Downer was an untrustworthy Clinton agent because when he was foreign minister, the Australian government donated to the Clinton Foundation's anti-HIV initiative.
This is ridiculous - Downer passed on that Papadopoulos had told him that the Russians were shopping dirt on Clinton. Normal people might think that normal Americans would have an interest in blatant but underhanded attempts to interfere in the election coming from Russia. But no - for wingnuts it's all grand conspiracy thinking that no one should ever have acted on this because - you know - Clinton and anyone who ever had anything to do with her was in every and any way always corrupt and it's a case of conspiring against the Right.
Steve Kates (of course) passes on the meme today, and such influential wingnut bloggers like the high functioning but gormless idiot Ace of Spades thinks it's really big too.
Monty - again, I say to you - the wingnutty Right is just too stupid to argue with these days. Just too stupid...
