sign of the times

One way to tell an election season is coming up -- the GOP ramps up (I was going to say "begin," but they never really stop) its campaign of lies and slander about the Democrats. Latest example -- allegations that opponents of the de facto Administration are defeatists who want to give Iraq back to Saddam. When pressed, White House political operatives can't point to any opponents actually SAYING that, but they like to imply that is the logical extension of the Democrats' position.

You know, like saying that the GOP wants to enslave all working class people in order to give all the fruits of society to the wealthiest 10% of Americans can be seen as the logical extension of Republican policies.
