The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

What we have to look forward to

None of us should be surprised by this, the most recent Mitt Romney ad in heavy rotation in Florida.

There are slivers of truth in this ad, but a good deal of it goes WAY over the line of credibility. Check out the ABC News piece from Jonathan Karl's "Spinners and Winners" bit.

If this is the kind of tactic that Mitt Romney (this is Romney, not his Super PAC) a fellow Republican, is willing to place in the media, just imagine what the Democrats will do if Gingrich is the nominee.

Gov. Mitch Daniels (Ind.), in my opinion, should have been the Republican nominee. He chose not to get into this nasty fray. He is calm, smart and articulate. Watch his response to President Obama's State of the Union Address.

Instead, we are about to be treated to a blood-letting, the likes of which Republicans have not seen for some time. Whomever the nominee eventually is, will be a tired and battered foe for a refreshed, heavily armed and wealthy incumbent.

Now, reeeaaaaally. What did Newt expect?

What's Newt saying in his ads?

Good show! I wonder what the Gypsies are stealing while their dogs fight and distract us.

Anyway, blood-letting is a good cathartic process. It used to be common to administer it to sick people.

Fear fear fear - don't for for "them" because... seems to be the only way to drive votes, i.e., by politically stampeding the cows and sheep from one side of the pasture to the other.
And then comes the political spin, "See, LOOK at all the people I have supporting me"... when in fact the people are just trying to get out of the crossfire and pretend they have not just been herded like a common cow.
