    us on the left, but it's off message yet again.  The more we complain and talk about the skeletons in the closets, the more the Rove campaign will indignantly call us names and chalk up another day of off message victories.  Remember Dan Rather's smoking gun?  Remember who sent that fax?  Are you seeing a trend of all these volunteers stepping forward?  If it's issue related, get down on all fours wih a spy glass and suss it out, if it's personal, it's probably a plant by the Dough Boy himself.

      that's salacious and I'd argue that it makes no sense to react to Rove's scandal de jour.

      If Michele Obama had done this we'd have never heard the end of it.

      I keep saying this - no one reads it apparently - it's not about the drugs. It's about how John McCain handled the situation.

      If he hadn't been so worried about saving his political ass, we'd have never even known about the drugs.

      He lied. He falsely accused an innocent man of extortion. If all that stuff's ok with you, I guess I'm talking to the wall.

      This ain't no party. This ain't no disco. This ain't no foolin' around!

        It's about winning.  You want to go with a story that has a sympathetic explanation, this is it.  You want to go with a story that cuts the heart out of the Obama campaign, this is also it.  Why don't we go with something like, Keating, or Iseman?  It's not like this is the only thing we have on McCain.
