What the Rovians Do

"Dean Chides Ehrlich for Staff Choice" reminds us about the Rethug playbook--attack a battle-scared veteran like Max Cleland and smear him as a terrorist sympathizer:

"Governor Ehrlich promised Marylanders that he would end the politics of division and personal attacks," Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said in a press release yesterday. "Instead of honoring this promise, he has hired Bo Harmon, who launched one of the most virulent and offensive political attacks against former Georgia Senator Max Cleland, a decorated war veteran and triple amputee who served his country valiantly in Vietnam."-from the story in the Washington Post.

"Raising Kane, The Voice of Virginia Progressives," has some additional commentary on the parallels between GOP campaigns in Maryland and Virginia.

If we don't fight them there, we will have to fight them here.
