Presidential Competition Turns Sour

Insults hurled against Democratic candidates and their supporters include "Judas", "Blue Dress", "Joe McCarthy", "monster", "rhymes with witch", and "Ozone man". What's the likely impact of the Blue Team taking off the gloves and throwing hay makers?

"I'm starting to worry," Democratic pollster Mark Mellman, an adviser to John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election, writes in The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper. "I believe Democrats are exquisitely positioned to win the White House in 2008. The only thing that could defeat us is us, and it feels like we just might."

The candidates might both land major blows, knocking the pair out simultaneously. How sad would that be? Should they administer smelling salts, would the electorate wake up?
