Deja vu all over again

Coast Guard member spit on near Occupy Boston tents:

Fox news perpetuating the “news” that someone hassled and spit on a woman in a Coast Guard uniform “near” the OccupyBoston site. Because, you know, hippies are famous for that kind of imaginary thing.

Remember all of the stories about Vietnam vets being spat on — that people just made up? I’ll take this one with a large grain of salt.

  1. No evidence provided by Fox that the incident even happened, apart from the anonymous claim. Not even clear that the Coast Guard is endorsing her version of the supposed event. The Fox report appears to be tailored to obscure the fact that the claim is unsupported. OTOH, it is exactly the kind of smear I expect right-wingers to make up, given the history of the Vietnam protester smear.

  2. If only someone, somewhere, would ever ask me about my spitting habits. They coincide with my dusting-off-my-feet habits.

    The Coast Guard is not quite there yet.
