  •  Abramoff Linked = weasel-word of choice (none)
    The Republican Right's preferred weasel words have been "Abramoff-linked" and "Abramoff-related" to try and smear the Democrats with their own sh!t. Wolf goes one rung lower, trying
    "Abramoff-related organizations and outfits."


    •  Question (none)
      Does Orthadox Judaism get to be an "Abramoff-related religion" now?

      (sorry if that non-serious question hits you in a bad place, i'm just going overboard with "Abramoff-related" things in order to drive that damn phrase into the ground in order to kill it's credibility)

    •  Reminds one of (none)
      weapons-of-mass-destruction-program-related-activities, don't it?

      As in, how fucking desperate when you've stooped to that level of circumlocution, and how the Dems would be mocked if they tried anything so bush

    •  What this is like.. (none)
      Republicans trying to implicate Democrats in this via tiny through-third-party fund issues, while they took DIRECT from the source (and a lot of it) is rather like someone accusing someone of shoplifting a fifty-cent candy bar while they, themselves, just got caught cleaning out the cash register.
      •  No it isn't (none)
        because the democrats took NOTHING.  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.  The 50 cent candy bar is EXACTLY what Dean did not allow Blitzer to pull.
        It's not the size in relative comparison that counts here, it's that you establish the relative comparison itself.  This is the germ of every obfuscation by the Repugs.  They refined this to such a sublime level that until recently most were unaware of its simple elegance.  And just look how effective it works even on this site!
