The attack machine cranks up already

18 Jan

For the love of all that is holy and good, can’t the right-wing attack machine wait just a damn minute? Barack Obama announces that he’s forming an exploratory committee to look at running for president in 2008. It’s news, but hardly earth-shattering. Evan Bayh formed such a committee and decided not to run.

But the vultures on the right can’t wait to start attacking someone who might actually bring some good ideas to the table. Fox News is no big surprise, but ABC is starting to become a Fox News clone. There’s more here and here.

Of course, the right-wing hacks have to do this. When you have no ideas of your own, or your ideas are not as good as your opponents, you have to resort to mud-slinging. And when they do, that’s how the target knows he’s won the argument.

Makes me want to go give money to Obama’s committee, just to piss off the right wingers.

    The vast right wing conspiracy is the least of Barack Hussein Obama’s problems.
    Just wait till the Clinton slice and dice and smear machine takes over.

    And, very possibly, Nightline producers were expecting Hillary in a walk and are annoyed by the competition.

    You never know.
