A Rigged Election Is the Only Way They Can Play It
By John McCaslin
Saying it "posts video regularly on YouTube," the Democratic National Committee yesterday appealed for Americans to grab their camcorders and send any and all Republican presidential "campaign gaffes" to its Washington headquarters.
"Just remember what happened during the 2006 campaign when former Sen. George Allen, a Republican from Virginia, called a young man by a racial slur -- and got caught on tape," says the DNC's Internet team. "Within a matter of hours, the episode spread through the Internet to Virginia voters, who started asking new questions about Allen's character and leadership.
"Senator Jim Webb defeated Allen by 8,000 votes -- and the Democratic Party took back the Senate.
That's one example," says the DNC. "You can bet that during the 2008 campaign there will be plenty more examples of this behavior -- not to mention shameless misinformation, outright lies and blatant fear-mongering."
