David Kahane, Winner of the Intertubes?
The Republicans Are Just Too Dang Civil and Honorable

If you've got two minutes and nothing to do, you might as well read this at the possibly-finally-bottomed-out NRO.

If the purpose of the intertubes (other than the pr0n) is the dissemination of stark, raving nonsense, then, well, we may have a winner.

See, apparently the party of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove is just too dang nice and honorable to win against the ruthless and fiendishly clever DEMONOCRATS!!!11 Apparently the GOP...wait for it...brought a knife to a gunfight. See, the GOP just hasn't been vicious enough.

Jeez, these people. Actually, for fifteen years or so, the GOP has been bringing a shotgun to an ice cream social...and they still lost three-fifths of the time. See, sometimes you can be really, really vicious and dishonorable and still lose.

And on a similar note:

You have no fear of the underdog. That's why you will not survive.

You see, the jackal pack always gets their man. Or woman, as the case may be, and they hounded Palin out of office with a sea of phony ethics charges.

You might have missed the NYT Magazine article about Bill Clinton a few months ago, and one section stood out to me, although I didn't see the press make anything of it.

[Gee, I wonder why...]

And the man once called the “first black president” remains deeply wounded by allegations that he made racially insensitive remarks during the campaign, like dismissing Obama’s South Carolina win by comparing it with Jesse Jackson’s victories there in the 1980s.

“None of them ever really took seriously the race rap,” he told me. “They knew it was politics. I had one minister in Texas in the general election come up and put his arm around me.” This was an Obama supporter. “And he came up, threw his arm around me and said, ‘You’ve got to forgive us for that race deal.’ He said, ‘That was out of line.’ But he said, ‘You know, we wanted to win real bad.’ And I said, ‘I got no problem with that.’ I said it’s fine; it’s O.K. And we laughed about it and we went on.”

Well, Bill might have been able to laugh; it was Hillary who paid the price.

But if they could bring down Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin was comparatively easy pickin's.
