The guy from the Trib is the editor who, last time I checked, was supposed to maintain journalistic neutrality.
What the hell does that even mean? If a reporter comes out and says, "I personally witnessed John Kerry rape three altar boys!" am I supposed to say, "Nu uh. You're supposed to be neutral! You can't report what you saw!"
Whatever it is that you're smoking Grimis, that must be some good shit.

Originally posted by jivesoulbroThen again, Rove's mentor was Atwater, who brought us Willie Horton. And Horton was unfortunate, but it worked for Bush. Maybe they're taking the same chance, and maybe they'll be right again.
There's nothing that really can be said that already hasn't been said, but that is moral relativism for ya.
What the hell does moral relativism have to do with anything? Willie Horton committed a horrible crime and it was a stupid policy that Massachusetts had, and Dukakis should have been held accountable. I don't have a problem with that. But they used Horton's photo so often and so gratuitously, not to mention repeating his name, that it seemed pretty clear they were trying to scare conservative white people.
