Dirty Politics

The White House is of the opinion that people who want to know more about Bush’s Air National Guard service are playing dirty politics. The word hypocritical doesn’t begin to describe this. Karl Rove invented modern dirty politics, and built his career on his expertise in teaching just that. Remember the push pulls in South Carolina in 2000 that ended McCain’s campaign?

Apparently the White House believes that it’s OK to engage in dirty politics as long as you’re telling people lies about your opponent. If you’re telling the truth then it’s unfair and should be outlawed. It’s perfectly OK for the GOP to paint Max Cleland, a multiple amputee war hero, as a coward and unpatriotic but it’s not OK to question the apparent lack of service of Bush.

This will be my first year ever voting for a Democrat for President.
