On What Planet?

Susan Estrich declares that, " The trouble with Democrats, traditionally, is that we're not mean enough". On what planet would that be?

For more than four years, starting when Bush was the Republican nominee, the Dems have been nothing but mean.

He's a drunk

He got his girlfriend an abortion

He stole the election

He's a fascist

He's Hitler

He lied

Iraq was all about Haliburton

He was AWOL

And those are just off the top of my head. Guess what, Susan? It's been the Dems continual meanness and hate that has turned this election personal for me. If you think the Dems haven't been "mean", then I have no idea what your definition of the word would be.

oh she is friggin high!!! Those lefties are really bad. Hell, they put up fences and barbed wire for OUR protestors at the Dem convention but we left open areas for THEIR protestors at the Rep convention. Hmmm and there was violence at during their protesting.

Don't forget the accusations of cocaine use, and the "late hit" of Campaign 2000 about his DWI.

This is what the Democrats have left. Special-interest politics is failing them, because of the terrorism crisis. So they have to fling mud. It comes naturally to them, anyway.

So the Democrats aren't mean, eh? Let's not forget what they did to these two women:

Linda Tripp

Paula Jones (remember the "drag a $100 bill through a trailer park" remark by Carville?)

Makes you think twice about being a whistle-blower, eh?

Don't forget the demonization of Ronald Reagan...not to mention the nastiness in the years preceding.
