People opposed Hillary before this media "drive by Deaning"...
Is this "drive by" a setup to discredit oppositon to Hillary? Just asking.

Anyone who bashes Hillary for this is STUPID, STUPID, STUPID. You are just buying into
another distracting, grade school fight that has ZERO to do with the issues facing our country.

This is a classic GOP tactic, where legitimate opposition to a bill or candidate exists,
and some superficial factoid is used to discredit the opponents. If the candidate happens
to be Catholic, the opposition is "anti-Catholic", even if the bill is about regulating pork
futures. If the candidate happens to be Hispanic, the opposition is "anti-Hispanic",
even if the bill is about school vouchers.

Hillary has been around for a LONG time. Everyone already has an opinion about her.
This video clip isn't changing anyone's mind. So, why are people on this board stupidly
buying into this divide-and-conquer hack?

I haven't said one word about it because I thought the whole thing was so obvious as
to be beneath words.

Given the amount of energy being wasted on this crap, I figured that I would at least
get some visibility by offering my two cents.

So, anyone who wants to bash Hillary should at least have the brains to bash her for
something substantive, instead of this stupid, stupid namecalling.

1. You are so correct
If anyone says anything against HRC we are using right wing talking points. This is ridiculous.

6. I was also considering leaving DU over this...propaganda
that is spewed by Hillary haters. I used to trust DU, but now it is just another ugly source of faux information. And the way the posts follow the republican talking points makes me wonder about the sources.
