I'm not a huge fan of linking Matt Drudge, his stuff is running at 0 for 2 in the Crabitat at the moment. But this one comes from a press release, so one way or another, it can't reflect back on Drudge. The Allen Campaign is hitting James Webb – hard – over Webb's fiction writing. Let me say this, it sounds desperate, it sounds weird.
But there is something weird about Webb's writing that may make it effective.
I will not excerpt it here. Go over to Drudge to read it. This may actually damage Webb. I have never read anything he wrote until today. If I had, I would have put the book down when I hit the lead part in the Drudge link – too over the top for me. That is why this may damage Webb. There are a lot of people all over the country that would find the mind that wrote that unacceptable at the dinner table. That is really what determines a lot of votes: would I like to sit down with this candidate in my home?
It does not negate the fact, however, that this is the worst election cycle I can remember seeing. It is positively raw.
