    That's the lesson to draw here.  When people like Halperin and Gloria Borger are totally incapable and unwilling to point out distinctions (it's sometimes called journalism) and prefer to play this chickenshit coward's game of saying, "Both sides do it..." -- no matter WHAT, it makes sense to make more outrageous claims.

    For instance, we should accuse Mitt Romney of having seventeen sister-wives hidden in a Mormon desert-town, somewhere, all collecting welfare.  

    Then Mark Halperin could say, "The Republicans tried to Swiftboat John Kerry.  The Democrats are trying to Polygamize Mitt Romney.  But don't worry.  It's all the same!"

    The funny thing is, a lot of people on the right would believe it.  A lot of the same people who believed the Swift-Boat shit, or at least accepted it a little bit on a provisional basis when forming their opinions.  Why?  Because people that simple and dumb are eager to believe shit like that.
