Gutter Politics or The Democrats Start Acting Like They Have a Pair
Who was it that said when a conservative argues with a liberal, the conversation, 99.9% of the time, will end with the liberal saying, "Well, you've made a good point." Well hopefully this is the end of such refined and definitely unreciprocated noble discussion. As the Democrats begin to realize that unless they fight the same way the Repugs do, they're doomed.
The sparks continue to fly as the White House released documents that Bush just claimed last weekend were already public. And as we all anticipate the release of photographs of Jane Fonda with John Kerry, the White House starts telling us that all of this concern about Bush's National Guard service is "gutter politics".
Scottie: You expect the garbage can to be thrown at you in the 11th hour of the campaign, but not nine months before Election Day. I certainly hope that this level of discourse is not a reflection of what the American people can expect from the Democratic Party over the duration of the campaign.
I certainly do hope this is an indication of the level of discourse the American people can expect. I just hope they start asking why Bush refused to take his flight physical in 1972 or even better, why after 3 years we still have no idea what the fuck happened on September 11th 2001.
