Its Not About the Truth

So all this talk about whether the memos that CBS used in its report about whether Bush was AWOL from the National Guard are fakes -- does it really matter?

The reality is Republicans since Lee Atwater have made a mockery of our election process by distracting the electorate with this kind of crap. Whether the charges are true or not doesn't matter anymore. What matters is putting the candidate on the defensive so that his message doesn't get heard and doubt gets created in the mind of the voter.

Were most of the charges against Clinton true? Were most of the things said about Al Gore true? The answer is no in both cases, but the goal was accomplished. The effecacy of Clinton's presidency was reduced and Al Gore was defeated (not really, but whatever).

Looks like the Republicans might've finally gotten a taste of their own medicine...
