Sen. Rick Santorum R-Pa, who happens to be 17pts down in the polls against D-pro-lifer Casey, hustled to the Senate Floor and declared: "We found WMDs!" Rick was referring to an old find of about 500 duds.
It didn't take long for pundits to point out the fools fallacy and for the Pentagon to say: "Not exactly?" AND, the WH remained silent (for three years?) about something that COULD get Bush off the WMD bandwagon. Rick was duped. Who ever sold him that this"bombshell" was news that could help him win a few votes, must've been working for Casey?
Expect to see Casey campaign ads showing R-boy Rick declaring emphatically:"WE FOUND W.M.Ds!!" Followed by, "liar, liar, pants on fire! Do you want this man to represent you? Want the truth?..vote Casey.": (something "ditsy Democrat" like that?)...the ads are probably already in the can and ready to go) Dirty tricks?
Beware Republican incumbents, the Dems are not all donkeys and they are determined to knock off enough Republicans to achieve a majority...somewhere, anywhere...THEY are ruthless when desperate.
