His response was to win the nomination. I didn't even have to use Google!

Since you're sort of being polite here, i'll politely point out that in the example you used to start this thread, the YouTube anti-Hillary ad, the person who created it immediately resigned his position with the company that created Obama's website. He created his ad independently, and not on company time. But still, realizing the position he put his employers in, he graciously left his post (the company says he was fired, but the ad creator's grace in understanding the position he put them in is telling).

Everyone's being completely honest about their connections to this ad, although i suppose you're not willing to believe that, Tolerator. But if we're supposed to buy that the Bush campaign's connection to the black baby smear was tenuous based simply on your reading of the article, i think fair is fair, and you should be willing to take these people at their word.

I believe the Bush campaign distanced itself from the episode much like the Obama campaign is doing now.

I think Chris Dodd is the Democratic sleeper, neither Obama or Clinton impress me as a voter.

They are much more civilized, as it has been pointed out the Dems grind each other down until the convention, the last man standing gets the nod. The Republicans debate until the convention and then annoint one to the nomination.

GWB and McCain campaigns never got as nasty as the dems get.


This may be the single most stupid post on this forum, ever. Good work.
