5Men Were you one of those who believed that the Clintons remembered nothing of their lives prior to the day they were questioned? Anyway, WHO CARES whether the brilliant Obama knew he was paying someone to kill children, presidential candidates, supreme court justices. He knows it now and has shown NO regret. He and the Hollywood slime worry about unkind words spoken to kids in school, but do nothing to stop the violence south of our border

When it comes to opposition research, there is often only one difference between a candidate's vicious negative ad and an "investigative" news report: the undeserved patina of media "objectivity" and respectability.

Take the Washington Post's Jason Horowitz's 5,400-word "expose" on how Mitt Romney may have pinned a boy down and cut his hair in 1965. 1965? That's almost a half century ago. Even if every detail were accurate -- and they weren't -- a journalist could pull a muscle in the hyper-aggressive attempt to make it somehow relevant to the present moment or even the recent past.
