16. What's particularly insidious about this method is that they go for the strength
of their opponent with amazing arrogance and chutzpah...Murtha's a coward, Gore's not really green, Kerry's not a war hero and doesn't support the troops, Cleland (a triple amputee) is not a patriot, Edwards' house is too big....the pattern is clear. What's double the frustration is that these kinds of attacks should be easy to defend vigorously by the individual and by the party. (Reminds me of a brilliant DU post I have somewhere that began with "Steven Colbert is Not Funny" and continued with all the things that are the opposite of what the administration says they are)

I can't count the number of times dems have been shamed into apologies when they should have been fighting back with honesty, vigor, and intensity. They attack dems' strengths and issues with lies; we attack their weaknesses with the truth....and which is working better?

Next time the VP tells a senator to fuck off, I want to see a brawl...at the very least a loud "Bite me!"
