I’ve somehow been subscribed to some rather insipid GOP mailing list that keeps sending me press releases. The sender is RNCResearch@rnchq.org. Many of them have the headline: They Said It! and feature such nonsense as,
“… Mr. Kerry saved his harshest words for Dr. Dean … ‘Anger and attacks are all well and good,’ Mr. Kerry said. ‘But when it comes to our jobs, we need a president who can build a barn, and not just kick it down.'”
Now, why would the fact that someone’s primary opponent says bad things–and not ALL that bad, really–about them be particularly noteworthy? Certainly, worse things were said of then-Governor Bush by John McCain in 2000.
Who are these mailings supposed to impress?
