Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down

I recall Hillary Clinton, herself, saying it.  It was a long time ago, probably during her husband's administration.  She was describing a tactic used by Republicans at the time.  And it is a tactic used by bullies, deniers, power-seekers, jerks and just plain idiots just about everywhere.  It is a kind of paranoid superstition.  She said that Republicans constantly blame Democrats of the faults or sins which of which they, themselves, are guilty.  In other words, if a politician is embezzling money, or in bed with enemy countries, or in bed with young men, or what have you, all they have to do is shift attention towards the opposing politicians, blaming them for such crimes.

This is very much the wrong way to go.  This is the OPPOSITE of progressive.  Who cast the first stone?
