Michelle Malkin isn't even pretending that today's Ann Romney/Hillary Rosen kerfuffle was about advancing policies that her side believes will help women.  It's not about women at all:

We're supposed to be a democracy in which we have an ongoing contest about what's best for the country, and for individual citizens and groups. But for the right, it's never about that. It's always completely about winning. First, last and always. Winning for the sake of winning, and nothing else.

Incidentally, that's also what greed on Wall Street is about. After the first quarter billion or so of personal wealth, there's no way you'll ever be able to spend it all.

But those guys keep on fighting for reduced taxes on their earnings, keep ripping off America, keep grabbing for more so they can keep score — and make sure their score is higher.

"Mine is bigger," is their battle cry.

Kind of makes you wonder what they look like naked.

Yours crankily,
The New York Crank

You're right, Steve, and we'd damn well better not forget it. No more loose-lipped "strategists" and "advisers" getting on TV and brainfarting. Unless Axelrod clears it, it remains unsaid.

I think this particular dust-up will blow over, but only if it's not followed by others. There's far too much at stake for free-lance punditry to be countenanced.

Prezactly, BH; we don't need any more unforced errors. That one may not have been Bucky Dent level, but it sure didn't help the cause.
