It’s bad enough that an article at the Moonie controlled Washington Times throws an ethics charge at George Soros by linking him with drug cartels and the like. That was bad enough; what Dennis Hastert doesn’t understand, he has to slime.
What was absolutely worse, though, was the “ad” in the middle of the article. There’s such a movement that’s not so much as for Kerry, but against Bush and his criminal regime, aka “Anybody But Bush”. Well the Moonies have twisted this around, so it’s now “10 out of 10 terrorists agree: Anybody But Bush”.
So now if you support political dissent, you’re a terrorist? Nice….

Washington, DC, Aug. 29 (UPI) — House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., had harsh words Sunday for Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, a major financial backer of anti-Bush 527 groups.
“You know, I don’t know where George Soros gets his money,” Hastert said on Fox News Sunday. “I don’t know where — if it comes overseas or from drug groups or where it comes from.”
A number of Soros-backed groups, operating as part of the Open Society network, have been advocates for the legalization of what, in the United States, are illegal narcotics.
“The fact is we don’t know where (Soros’) money comes from,” Hastert said. “Before, transparency — and what we’re talking about in transparency in election reform is you know where the money comes from. You get a $25 check or a $2,500 check or $25,000 check, put it up on the Internet. You know where it comes from, and there it is,” Hasert said.
