This little bit of linkage has a number of interesting things in it...
Firstly, the 'flippers'. If the Dem tried a manuveur like this I can tell you exactly what would happen, firstly, they would be banned from all events. Secondly, they would be beaten in the name of Family values/jesus.
Denise Hastert, the speaker of the house has accused George Soros of taking drug money.
On "Fox News Sunday," the Illinois Republican insinuated that billionaire financier George Soros, who's funding an independent media campaign to dislodge President Bush, is getting his big bucks from shady sources. "You know, I don't know where George Soros gets his money. I don't know where - if it comes overseas or from drug groups or where it comes from," Hastert mused. An astonished Chris Wallace asked: "Excuse me?" The Speaker went on: "Well, that's what he's been for a number years - George Soros has been for legalizing drugs in this country. So, I mean, he's got a lot of ancillary interests out there." Wallace: "You think he may be getting money from the drug cartel?" Hastert: "I'm saying I don't know where groups - could be people who support this type of thing. I'm saying we don't know."Isn't this just plain unadulterated defamation? Can he be sued for this? Seriously, the GOP campaign resides solely around slandering the opposition. So is it any wonder that little Johnny is running on the exact same campaign. You hear the one about Latham killing the economy? pushing intrest rates through the roof? It's unfounded bullshit. But hey, if you say it, even if it is disproved later on, the damage is done.
