You Don't Really Wanna Go There, But Heck, Let's

The certifiable RNC starts off its smear of Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos by snidely pointing out that he had a "relaxing vacation".

This coming from a party whose "war president" racked up the most vacation days of any president in modern history during hurricane Katrina.

But heck, since you've led the way, RNC, why don't we go there. Seems like you need to be reminded of this:

Bush is traveling and will attend 'conversations' with experts and the elderly in El Mirage, Ariz., and Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., in an effort to sell older Americans on the value of a prescription drug benefit that begins next year for Medicare patients.
