Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

Straw, Grasp

The Kerry campaign remains mired in the past.  Apart from a fixation of Vietnam which is almost fetishistic, now we have Watergate. It almost beggars belief, but here it is at the DNC:

The DNC is now putting the Watergate cabinet to a more symbolically useful task. At a press conference today, DNC Chair Terry McAuliffe said that that cabinet would be used to house documents on what he called Bush’s “Dirty Dozen”–the 12 investigations currently underway involving Bush’s administration. These investigations range from Halliburton no-bid contracts to finding out who outed CIA operative Valeris [sic] Plame.

So the very cabinet targeted by the Plumbers is now holding ‘dirt’ on Bush.  Dirty tricks, get it? A fairly lame attempt at symbolism, but hey, one can’t expect much better from folks whose ideas calcified somewhere around three decades ago.
