The Right Way to Do It
Just one thing I noted in passing with regard to Francine Busby's press release on McCain's decision to cancel a campaign event with Bilbray. The following is from the press release (emphasis mine):
Perhaps Senator McCain cancelled his appearance after learning that Lobbyist Brian Bilbray has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars attacking the McCain immigration reform plan that Francine supports, said Busby Communications Director Brennan Bilberry. Lobbyist Bilbray is intentionally avoiding a serious conversation about immigration reform because he has no solutions, only more of the same rhetoric we have heard from Washington.Note the consistent use, without comment or discussion of lobyist Bilbray. No apologies, just make it a plain, declarative statement of fact. Let the opponent prove her wrong. This is the kind of straightforward, decisive thing Democrats need to get in the habit of doing.
