Well, we were all braced for a negative campaign of epic proportions centered on race. It was kind of a given that whoever faced off against Obama would be demonized as a bigot. Now that Rick Santorum is leading in many polls for the Republican nomination, we're seeing the possibility of a different tactic: a negative campaign of epic proportions centered on sex. The media and the Left (but I repeat myself) are determined to make opposition to HHS's unconscionable coercion of religious liberty into a case of sexism, painting all Catholics (and other religious folk who oppose HHS's overreach) as "patriarchal men" who oppose contraception.

Well, we all knew that Obama couldn't run on his record. He can't even win by running against his eventual opponent's record, whoever that opponent might be. So the only tactic left is to invent a record for his opponent and run against that. The fact that it's all lies and distortion is irrelevant. If the election is about Obama, he loses; if it's about his opponent, he probably wins.
