Our friends at the RNC think Dem leaders are just plain mean

From time-to-time the crack staff here at PrometheusSpeaks checks in on the Republican National Committee, just to see what they’re smoking. The RNC dedicates a webpage to supposed scurrilous attacks by Democratic leaders that show…well, I’m not sure what it’s supposed to show. We’ll report, you decide.

"They play hardball. We play softball."
- DNC Strategist Donna Brazile As Quoted In The Weekly Standard, 6/30/03, Citing The New York Times, 5/26/03
SOFTBALL??? Democrat Claims Of "Softball" Refuted By Bitter Personal Attacks

DNC Web Cartoon Depicts President Bush As Dr. Frankenstein And Calls Him A "Madman." (Democrat National Committee Website, www.democrats.org, Accessed 6/23/03)

(Eds. Note: The image is actually quite flattering. Dr. Frankenstein, however, has objected to the comparison.)

Rev. Al Sharpton (D-NY) Says President Bush Lied. "If President Clinton had told the lie that George Bush told, he would be impeached." (Robert E. Pierre, "Jackson Event Is Forum For Democrats," The Washington Post, 6/23/03)

(Eds. Note: And then drawn and quartered. And that’s just by the “liberal media.”)

Senator John Edwards (D-NC) Calls President Bush "Absolute Phony." "We have to show this president as the absolute phony he is ... He is a phony through and through." (John Wagner, "Edwards: Bush A 'Phony,'" The [Raleigh] News And Observer Website, www.newsobserver.com/edwards, 6/21/03)

(Eds. Note: You’ve seen the aircraft carrier landing; you know his actual military record.-- except for those seventeen months that he deserted due to a cocaine induced haze. Those details have yet to be put together by the liberal media.)

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) Calls For "Regime Change In The United States." "What we need now is not just a regime change in Saddam Hussein and Iraq, but we need a regime change in the United States." (Glen Johnson, "Kerry Says US Needs Its Own 'Regime Change,'" The Boston Globe, 4/3/03)

(Eds. Note: We have one at least every 4 to 8 years. It is in the Constitution. Really. Check if you don’t believe me.)

Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) Blamed Potential War Casualties On President Bush. "I'm saddened, saddened that ... we have to give up one life because this president couldn't create the kind of diplomatic effort that was so critical for our country." (Senator Tom Daschle, Remarks At AFSCME Conference, 3/17/03)

(Eds. Note: Update: Sen. Dashchle is now saddened that we have had to give up over 200 lives of allied forces and thousands of Iraquis.)

Former Gov. Howard Dean (D-VT) Said Soon "Girls Won't Be Able To Go To School" Under President Bush. (Gov. Howard Dean, Remarks At NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner, 1/21/03)

(Eds. Note: This one may actually be an overstatement, unless he was referring to the possible consequences of the pending condemnation of our crumbling educational infrastructure.)
