    We've seen them do this time and again.  If they can turn it into a "he said she said," political "prank," then it's just another political "shenanigan" and they come out relatively unscathed.  We have to ram it down their flabby throats.  (Again, no pun intended.)

      •  the GOP spin's already on CNN (0+ / 0-)

        Clearly, the accusations are out there.  Whether they stick is anyone's guess.  Our problem as Democrats is that we continue to think that the GOP will implode under the weight of its own scandals, merely because we can't understand why any right-minded person would ever vote for these corrupt losers.  Unfortunately, though, people do still vote for them, and with the possible exception of Schiavo, the GOP has been able to recover quite well from its own mistakes.  In order to save our country we're going to have to get our hands the teensiest bit dirty and fight them in the trenches over this.
