14. It's all a "when did you stop beating your wife" trick.
Edited on Wed Sep-17-03 12:47 PM by maggrwaggr
That's all it is. They know it's groundless, they just want to distract people and GET HIM TO ENGAGE IN THEIR ARGUMENT.

If he's smart, he'll ignore them. And so will we.

Once you engage, you're toast.

"No, I swear, I had nothing to do with Waco!"

"Let me tell you what REALLY happened in Pristina ...."

That's how wild accusations turn into rumors/turn into public assumptions. Like Gore and the internet, blah blah blah

One thing I like about Clark is his ability to deal with assholes like this. I've been very impressed at how he handles the stupid questions.
