James Guckert for Dummies...

...or liberals who will buy any conspiracy theory that Kos throws out.
Just One Minute has it, it's good reading and shoots down the, ahem, "major" leftie talking points.

Here are some key points:

Guckert had a day pass, which has even more limited access than the harder to obtain "Hard Passes."

As one comment points out: "Matt Drudge got into a press briefing of the White House which approved a lawsuit against him... So again, this idea that it is difficult is nonsense."

Where was the outrage when the Crazy Old Aunt of the Left asked questions like:

"At the earlier briefing, Ari, you said that the President deplored the taking of innocent lives. Does that apply to all innocent lives in the world? And I have a follow-up." . . ."My follow-up is, why does he want to drop bombs on innocent Iraqis?"

Another poster nails it with:
The screaming hypocrisy here isn't the uptight White House giving a daily press pass to a former gay escort (especially in light of Bush's expressed tolerance for gay folks), the hypocrisy here is the allegedly pro-gay left's willingness to out a gay man in order to destroy his career and advance their political agenda.
