Are Lee Fang and Think Progress Intellectually Dishonest or Stupid?

But their latest bit of hackery begs the question of whether they are intellectually dishonest or just stupid. Power Line has a bit on it and Mark Tapscott does too.

There are a lot of important Senate races shaping up in 2012 and my strong fear is that many tea party activists are going to be so focused on beating Barack Obama — a worthy cause — that they are going to drop the ball on Senate races.
