Why so unserious, Kathleen?
Kathleen Parker, a Washington Post-It house conservative, makes the point the Obama campaign has reached an all-time low:
When it comes to over-the-top politics, the Obama campaign has set a new standard with recent attempts to paint Mitt Romney as a felon.
This clever and utterly false allegation was advanced more than once by Stephanie Cutter, President Obama’s deputy campaign manager.
But what’s the conclusion Parker gives her piece on the bogus Obama smear, perpetrated in no small part by the aforementioned Cutter?
It’s a shame that Cutter, a smart, talented woman, was drafted for such a dastardly role. Negative ads are one thing; slander is quite another.
Drafted? Drafted?! Where’s the evidence of drafted? Cutter is Obama’s deputy campaign manager and this is politics: it’s an all-volunteer force.
So in summary, if I have Parker’s characterization correct, Cutter is an over-the-top Obama campaign mercenary who will apparently say and do anything in order to get her boss reelected. But yet at the end of the day, she’s smart and talented.
Kathleen, this sort of disconnect makes you unserious.
