If the Cruel Shoe Fits

From an otherwise-innocuous AP report on Nancy Pelosi’s House fundraising efforts:

No Democrat except Obama raises more money, say party officials, who credit Pelosi with pulling in $189 million since 2003. But she also is the GOP’s favorite target this year, eclipsing even the president in the guilt-by-association tactic that Republicans are using in dozens of races. [emphasis, obviously, added]

OK, if the Democrat incumbents in question voted for Porkulus, voted for Obamacare, voted for Cap & Tax, and all the rest, then there is no “guilt by association.” It’s just regular old guilt the GOP is exploiting, and the charge should stick — and stick hard.
