Having viewed Nancy Peloski's damning self-indictment about 6 times, I can say that I am not shocked at all. What she is describing is exactly what many of us have observed in politics over the years. Apparently political office is an addictive drug, and those addicted to its allure will resort to any means to attain it's benefits.
The somewhat shocking thing about the video is her candid, frank and honest delivery of the methods used by the democratic party to smear a person's reputation and then benefit financially from the character destruction they themselves have inflicted on a victim and his family.
As someone has pointed out, it takes a lifetime to build a character and only a moment to destroy it. How unfair to have one's lifetime effort of walking the straight and narrow destroyed by the actions of liars!
A case can in fact be made that character assassination is worse than murder. It's a deed done in darkness with no possible means of self-defense for the victim. It results in a living death for the victim who is forced to fight the losing battle of starting over after his alleged life of crimes which he never contemplated let alone committed.
I hope no one thinks the statements made in this clip are insignificant. It should be enough to make any thinking viewer give his TV over to Doctor 12 guage for immediate repairs!
