By |August 24th, 2007|

You just can't script this stuff... er... Or maybe you can (but shouldn't) and that's exactly what happened. Talk about propping up a wingnut talking point. Is there something in the air?

Edwards Camp Responds

By |August 23rd, 2007|

Edwards Camp Responds updated below First, let me say that I'm not the campaign police. However, when I hear any Democratic presidential contender using obvious right-wing talking points in an important speech at some point you've just got to draw the line, as I did this morning.
