Fun With '08 Slurring

Matt Novak posted recently on the early start of 2008 smearing. Here's a laughable collection of slams from the RNC. Via Big Orange, who has encouraged its readership to come up with slams of its own against the Republican candidates. Y'all know mine for Tancredo...

Pay close attention to the Hillary Clinton one - apparently she's a "lifelong liberal." It seems that the RNC forgot that Hillary cut her teeth on Barry Goldwater's 1964 presidential run (link goes to Wikipedia article - pretty much every bio of Hillary mentions this tidbit though). D'oh. I'm a bit surprised someone at Big Orange hasn't picked up on this yet.

Something tells me that either a) there will soon be an opening at the RNC research department or b) we're about to start hearing the phrase "Goldwater liberal." Honestly, if you're going to launch ridiculous attacks on someone, at least launch factually correct ridiculous attacks on someone.
