Ah, The Humanity/Simplicity
Romney's joke (at a campaign stop in Michigan) about not needing a birth certificate - minus one for him. The Obama super-pac's ad that linked Mitt Romney to an individual's cancer death - minus one for them. The Romney super-pac's ad that totally distorted Mr. Obama's record regarding welfare reform - minus one for them. Stephanie Cutter saying that the Benghazi attacks are only a big deal because Romney and Ryan are politicizing it (the senseless slaughter of four American citizens is nothing, I guess) - minus (at least) one for her. Alan Grayson likening his 2010 Congressional opponent, Daniel Webster, to the Taliban - minus one for him. Michele Bachmann and Louie Gohmert attempting to tie a well-respected State Department official to Islamic terrorists - minus one for them....You see how this works, folks? We judge the merits of something strictly on whether it's right or wrong and, not, NOT, based upon who the perpetrator is. I mean, I know that this sounds utterly elementary and all but it does seem that I have to point it out from time to time. No?
