A case-study in cowardice: Jim Hoft accused the teacher who famously confronted Sarah Palin of being a liar. He headlined that she was no teacher, as claimed. But, as we all know, she is. She teaches theater tech. She was not in a drag queen band, moreover, but did direct a production of Hedwig. How does Hoft respond to the debunking of his non-scoop:

UPDATE: The Palin-haters now claim that “theater tech” is the name of some class they teach in Alaska. Sure it is… Keep spinning libs.

This is the Breitbartian mindset in a nutshell. Truth matters not a jot in a political war. If you err, you keep slurring the other. All that matters is a tribal war.
