The Dems' New Approach

Today, the Washington Post is running piece explaining that the Democrats are "targeting the personal lives of Republicans in numerous key House races as part of a campaign to capitalize on voter disgust with the messy personal lives and alleged character defects among elected officials."

It's up to Republicans to remind voters that this is just one more sign of the appalling lack of ideas on the part of their opponents. What's more, Republicans didn't prosper politically all that much by taking this tack, even when it was the Commander-in-Chief himself being orally serviced by a 19 year old intern as he spoke to a congressman about Bosnia. How much harder would it be for Democrats to prosper -- given that they were Clinton's chief defenders, and the first to tell us that sexual behavior has nothing to do with one's capacity to hold elective office?

Usually, to be a hypocrite one has to have standards. Amazingly, it seems the Democrats have achieved the nearly impossible -- being hypocrites without having any standards at all.

Carol, one definition of hypocrite is actor or pretender. Now the Dems seem to be acting and pretending to be engaging in a debate. But of course they are just hypocrites and hypocrites set their own standards.
