Paul Krugman of the New York Times makes very cogent points about what is happening in the political campaign wars. He stated the following:
"The willingness of the McCain campaign to engage in these tactics, employing such tainted spokesmen, tells us that the campaign has decided to go negative — specifically, to apply the strategy Karl Rove used so effectively in 2002 and 2004 (but not so effectively in 2006), that of portraying Democrats as unpatriotic."

I believe Karl Rove to be a totally immoral man. He will do anything at all to achieve his ends even if it means defaming people, or as in the case of former Governor Seligman of Alabama, helping to put them in jail on false charges. (Blogger's words)
