The lady doth protest
Elizabeth Dole on the Double-talk Express

Watching Elizabeth Dole, once an admirable figure, slide ever deeper into the pit of prevarication in her role as chair of the Republican National Senatorial Campaign Committee, is deeply discomfiting. Today on "Meet the Press," Dole called the Democratic candidate from Tennessee, Harold Ford, Jr., a supporter of gay marriage -- a charge that is (unfortunately) untrue. Then she called Ford's representation of himself as a moderate conservative -- which he clearly is -- "one of the greatest political frauds ever perpetrated."

How sad to see a political pioneer -- once an inspirational figure to a generation of women -- behave with such despicable dishonesty.

(Oh, yeah, and she also defended the racist "Harold, call me" ad run by Republican National Committee.)
