Shooting The Messenger

Regarding Sharon Bialek, Cain’s 4th accuser and the first to make her name public, the right wing media are shooting the messenger so that they don’t have to deal with her message. They are gleefully attacking her personal and financial problems, and her attorney’s liberal pedigree. This is how the right wing works: if you can’t discredit the message, discredit the messenger. Only this time, the strategy backfired. Cain is the one going down (tee hee) and the right wing media are looking transparently partisan and ridiculous.
