Death from a thousand paper cuts?

Well, maybe, but only because the sycophantic right-wing media keep pretending that bullet holes are paper cuts.

Here's a NEW bullet hole:

Phone-Jamming Records Point to White House

WASHINGTON - Key figures in a phone-jamming scheme designed to keep New Hampshire Democrats from voting in 2002 had regular contact with the White House and Republican Party as the plan was unfolding, phone records introduced in criminal court show.

The records show that Bush campaign operative James Tobin, who recently was convicted in the case, made two dozen calls to the White House within a three-day period around Election Day 2002 — as the phone jamming operation was finalized, carried out and then abruptly shut down.

The Republican officialdom says that that's "preposterous."

The national Republican Party, which paid millions in legal bills to defend Tobin, says the contacts involved routine election business and that it was "preposterous" to suggest the calls involved phone jamming.

WHY, exactly, is it "preposterous"?

Preposterous to suspect THIS crew of dirty tricks?

When have they done ANYTHING the honest way?

Seriously - we are cursed with a media corps that is dedicated to minimizing right-wing criminality. And the only reason it isn't working is because there is SO MUCH criminality.
