  •  My friend, (0+ / 0-)

    this smear is just an appetizer, an amuse-bouche, if you will, from the GOP sleaze machine. Wait till they roll out the rumors about Bill Clinton's sex life over the past 7 years (I don't know if he's "strayed from his marriage" during this time or not, but you know Richard Mellon Scaife has a Monica wannabe lined up in the wings).

    The only thing is that the Republicans will roll this stuff out for the general election campaign, after the Democratic voters can't change their mind about their nominee.

    •  If they had anything good or any good lie (0+ / 0-)

      It would come out now, or very soon. Opinions about the R's are hardening faster than Cheney's arteries. By 2008 all the lies in the world, especially as they get more fantastikal, will make no difference. The burden of proof is on the conservatives at last, after 12 years--since Gingrich and the '94 insurrection.

      •  I dunno (0+ / 0-)

        A good tactician who has done their oppo research will of course try to define their opponent early and create a narrative about them in the public mind, but they'll also hold stuff back for when the majority of Americans are paying attention, i.e.,  immediately after the convention and then, of course, from Labor Day onwards.

        Notice that the swiftboating of Kerry didn't occur until right after he was nominated.

        •  Yes, definitely, BUT (0+ / 0-)

          What do you say about a guy after you say he was schooled by Islamic Fundamentalist Terrormongers and were proved so wrong you tried to blame it on another Dem -- that he's a bad tipper? I mean seriously, what's left to throw that doesn't sound ridiculous to even the most drop-forged wingnut?
