38. I see. You are giving me the "They did not have a computer" excuse.
Edited on Wed Oct-04-06 04:04 PM by Dr Fate
Yes- they knew about it. They have "Google" on their computers as does the average DUer. They knew about it enought to say it was "old news" and that it would "make us look weak on defense" to make it an issue.

They knew about it enough to make vague references to it to the internet only activists/choir- but rarely or never in TV interviews.

Stop making excuses- WE knew about it, the foreign press knew about it- DEMS refused to discuss it b/c they were following a misguided strategy or they were too frightened to start a fight with the GOP/media.
