There Are Limits...

This is from regarding the Yearly Kos Convention and Democratic opposition research :

Not that there aren’t limits.

After Gehrke and Mehta were finished, a man raised his hand and said that John McCain was a POW but that he never had psychological counseling to deal with post-traumatic stress syndrome, and this could be used against him.

The people in the room reacted to this with silence. Some shook their heads.

“Let’s be very, very careful,” Mehta said. “Some people say, ‘Romney is a Mormon and McCain was a POW.’ But let’s remember that [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid is a Mormon, too. We are the party of religious tolerance. Other people say, ‘Rudy Giuliani lived with a gay couple.’ Great, but we don’t think there is anything wrong with that. So let’s use things in the right way.”
