That's right, folks. Y'all didn't do shit. You've got no legs to stand on now.
Did Jesse and Al call for violence, or use violent imagery in "character assassination campaign?" If so, what?

Honest question — "Duke lacrosse" rings some faint bells, but I really have no recollection what that was about; it probably didn't register very loudly on my radar.

In the time I've been following American politics, I have not seen rhetoric of this level, ever, from either side. I have seen such rhetoric elsewhere, though — specifically, in Lebanon: there it's quite common for politicians to characterize each other as traitors, criminals, and agents of foreign governments. Assassinations are also a regular occurrence.
