Mitt Romney is getting his ass kicked on this Bain thing. Bad enough that I expect at least an attempted Rovian Nat’l Guard Rather-esque ratfucking op before long:
TPM — This is ‘bitch slap’ politics played with a gusto and coldness seldom seen from Democrats, at least since the Bill Clinton days. Asking for an apology is losing. Saying you want something you clearly have no power to get is losing.
Trying to explain that you were CEO, President, sole shareholder, and paid way more than most people make in a year for all that, but not really in charge of anything and definitely not working there, is losing.
Just in case anyone goes wobbly, Josh also links to a swiftboat piece just to remind us how rotten these evil fuckers were back in the day. Claims of cowardice and made up heroics which, unlike those leveled at Romney, there was zero evidence for then or now. Speaking of Kerry, I recall lots of elite-bashing and funny jokes about him speaking French.
