Clintonian Stupidity NH Style *Update*

You would practically have to go over to the Republican campaigns to find someone to say something this stupid about an opponent, but no, the Clinton camp can handle it just fine. Billy Shaheen, Clinton campaign NH Co-chair in regard to Obama, "The Republicans are not going to give up without a fight ... and one of the things they're certainly going to jump on is his drug use." Jeeze, maybe they can crank up a few more Muslim e-mails. Or maybe go for the throat with Kindergarten.

I'm pretty sure we all know that politics isn't for the faint-of-heart, it can be pretty rough and I'm not really suggesting that what numbnutz had to say isn't so, but... There is exactly one Democrat running with negatives around 50% and there actually are some reasons for it. Is it real smart for Hillary Clinton's campaign to start worrying about another candidate's skeletons? One would be tempted to mention some skeletons she's dragging around, and with considerable less elected experience time. Proper nouns like Whitewater and Travel Office start to crop up in conversations. Or, once elected there are things like Flag Burning, Iraq Authorization, Iran Terrorism Resolutions, Bankruptcy Bills... I think it would behoove the Clintons to let another less challenged candidate to take that slippery slimy slope, not that any would necessarily.

Is that the problem? Ethics???

***Update***
Today Hillary denied any responsibility for Shaheen's statements and apologized. Uhuh.
