It can't be true that Democrats are fundamentally worse people than Republicans. That doesn't make any sense. But everywhere I look I see shabby Democrats. One was a representative of the Minnesota DFL party on Hardball, saying with a straight face that that disgrace of a memorial service for Paul Wellstone wasn't a political rally, and I am 100% positive he was lying when Matthews finally forced him to answer whether he knew about Mondale's old polling. He danced around it, then finally said he didn't. Right.

Donna Brazile, Al Gore's campaign chief the last time around, was worse. Matthews had her paired with Frank Luntz, who if I recall correctly is a Republican pollster. Matthews was talking political baseball with them--what works in an ad campaign, what doesn't; how risky is it to run a negative campaign in these bizarre circumstances, etc. Brazile--infamous for talking in a Washington Post Style section story about "those white boys" the Gore campaign was contending with during his presidential run--just couldn't resist trying to turn nearly every question into a tedious Democratic campaign commercial. Luntz spoke very nearly like a normal human being without waving the Republican banner. I actually learned something from him. Guess I learned something from Brazile too.
