It's no surprise to any astute observer that the Republican National Committee would coordinate with someone like Larry Sinclair- a man arrested for fraud, who failed a lie-detector in regards to his claims, a man who's claims contradict all likelihood of being truthful(Obama could afford a limo to bang in during the 90's when he still had student loans?). After all, the worst smearing McCain ever receiving came out of his own party. Senator Kerry, a decorated veteran, was made to appear like a war criminal. Senator Cleland, a triple-amputee vet, was thrown up on a screen with Osama bin Laden.
The Republican Party, "the party of family values," only values one thing; winning.
When news began to break that Larry Sinclair would be speaking before the National Press Club, I was not surprised. He obviously was not deterred by his own failing of the lie detector test- he's got an obsession with Obama like Obama Girl's got a crush on Obama. It's pretty twisted. However, I also remembered reading something by Michael Crowley of the New Republic;
It's easy to sink into despair here. Standing and watching all these Democrats chat up Sinclair--who's retained Montgomery Blair Sibley as his lawyer and --makes me want to fall to my knees, rend my garments, and start insanely screaming, "Wake up! Wake up! You'll hate a President John McCain!"
The emphasis has been added for obvious reasons. The Republican National Committee, without any issues that they can strongly run on, are going to run an entirely-negative campaign. Senator McCain is, sadly, unable to win this election with any sense of honor. In time, the Senator will see what some of us already know- he can only win ugly because of how his party, and yes perhaps even himself, will act. The extent they will go walking the moral-tightrope, weighing means to justify an end. The party of the One Value(winning) will forsake all other values. They will bare false witness, they will encourage others to, and they will run as far from the truth of the substance as they can.
They can run, but they can't hide from the Netroots. Tell the Republican National Committee to stop using another Curveball. Tell the National Press Club to stop acting like a tabloid.
