    but before you answer; I will warn you that it is not pretty what you contemplate, nor will my answer be palatable to decent people.

    So be careful in asking me for advice here; because those nearest and dearest to me, those that love me have a nickname for me:  Satan.  And I have earned that appellation in the past and will again in the future.

    You have to get ahead of the slime curve and regain the initiative.  You are hampered in that by being a decent person with scruples and an intact sense of morality.

    Those have got to go for the duration.  Sorry they are luxuries that can not be afforded on this little trip to crazytown.  

    They go after the bloggers/staffers you go after their families, friends and them personally.  Find away to get close to them wearing a wire if need be and record what they say.  IF possible bug their homes, offices, cars et al.  Tail them to see if they have a mistress, if they do get video and audio.  IF they don't arrange for somebody to take one for the team and catch them in an old time badger play.

    In a nutshell this is all about pain management and fear.  They are trying to make you afraid by inflicting pain.  Inflict greater pain upon them in response and when I say greater pain I am not talking about a proportional response.  No I am talking about breaking an arm in response to a slap and then twisting the bones around until the motherfucker passes out.

    You don't really want a wartime consigliere unless you are willing to go to war.  And war is an ugly, ugly business that can kill your soul.

    So, if what has been done by the other side is worth going to war over; and I do believe it is.  Then you must gird yourself for destroying your enemy in the most ruthless and efficient manner possible.  You must be capable of destroying not only his ability to make war but his will to wage it any further.

    Is that what you want?

      Even the word "campaign" invokes war.

      And a word to the Edwards campaign: if you can't crush this C-list wingnut, Donohue, like a bug, how are you going to deal with the full brunt of Karl Rove's Slime Machine if you win the nomination?

      With the response I've seen, even Ralph Nader would be able to damage Edwards' campaign.

      9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.

        Political campaigns really should be the small w principled contest IMHO then the big W mean spirited scorched earth ordeals that we have currently.

        But if it is WAR!!!! they want then god have mercy upon them for we shall not.
