    Who the hell cares what some Freeper posts.

    Still, it's important to remember that the most official organs of the Republican Party have the best of both worlds on this.  Freepers fling their shit for them, and they get to disavow it if the trail gets hot, while still benefitting politically from what the Freepers say during the storm.  The only way to turn that attack around is to counterattack and accuse the Republicans themselves of orchestrating these smears — which they probably did, anyway, considering that they're the most lockstep political party we've seen in a long time.  And even what they don't orchestrate, party leaders can approve or disapprove with winks and nods.  

    These are guys who had no scruples about using phone jamming to supress the vote in New Hampshire.  Of course they don't have any scruples about colluding with Freepers.
