Matthew Yglesias on the Democrats’ distortion of the Bush 9/11 ads:
There’s always something a bit discomfiting to me when I see a Democrat pull a really sharp campaign move — think of Max Baucus and the barber school ad, Mary Landrieux and the “secret plan” to destroy American sugar, Chuck Schumer and the putzhead controvery. It’s like . . . I thought we were the good guys here. And yet, winning always feels good.
