Subject: RE: BS: So how about that Connecticut election?
Cheney's comments about the defeat of Senator Joseph Leiberman,... are being viewed as a crass political effort to rehabilitate President George W. Bush and his Republican party ..."

And it'll be a SUCCESSFUL crass political effort, too! Just you wait & see.

"It comes like a punch to the gut, at times like these, when our leaders blatantly use the nation's trauma for political gain. We never get used to this."

People do indeed get used to it, especially from Republicans. If they didn't get used to it, they presumably wouldn't fall for it over & over again.The Times must be forgetting the Nixon campaigns, the Reagan Campaign, the "October Surprise", Dumbya's Campaigns, the Swift Boat Liars, & all.
