Maureen Dowd Would Be Proud

You know you're through the looking glass when you have one lefty blog quote another lefty blog out of context to manufacture some, I dunno, outrage or something:

Gavin has been following the right-wing assault [link excised - ed.] on America:

[Quote] I was watching cable ten minutes ago, and this one jerk from like the millionth conservative group was saying he hopes there's a really big terrorist attack on America so Bush can suspend the Constitution. [End Quote]

What is it about American conservatives that makes them anti-American?

Go click through to the post quoted above, and then click through to his source. Informal poll: try to figure out if Jeff a) bothered to read the whole thing; b) did read the whole thing, but didn't understand it; or c) read it and understood it, but presented it in this way hoping that his readers reader isn't intellectually curious enough to see that the quote isn't what he purports it to be.

UPDATE: Jeff comments that the answe is (d) None of the above. He was just trying to be clever. I'll leave it up to you to determine if he was successful.
