Back on December 15, I said that "Al Gore wounded Michael Dukakis in '88 by bringing up Willie Horton." As Bob Somerby's Daily Howler has noted several times (e.g., here), Gore criticized the Massachusetts furlough program but never mentioned Horton's name or his race. My error. Gore did draw a tiny bit of Dukakis's blood, though, and GOP sharks circled soon afterward.
