Hewitt’s Just Different

October 28th, 2005 · 2 Comments

I almost did a spit-take when I got to this part of the latest dispatch from the Hewittverse (emphasis mine):

The right’s embrace in the Miers nomination of tactics previously exclusive to the left – exaggeration, invective, anonymous sources, an unbroken stream of new charges, television advertisements paid for by secret sources – will make it immeasurably harder to denounce and deflect such assaults when the Democrats make them the next time around.

Hugh, stop, yer killing me…

    Did he think he was just posting to his blog, and send that to the Times by mistake? Is he such a hack all the way down he thought rational people might buy it?

    I think that it’s a successful delusion. More and more I’m coming to believe that it pays to sling mud if you’re already dirty. That people will forget – you base, eagerly, but others, well enough. After 8 years of the most deranges lies about the Clinton administration, the right coins terms like ‘Bush derangement syndrome’, to insult people who actually care that he’s f*cking the country.
