When you need an assassin . . .

. . . hire a Republican:
Gov. Paterson's decision to go nuclear on Caroline Kennedy was a hatchet job run by a pricey out-of-state consultant who specializes in political scandals, disgruntled administration sources said.
Judy Smith, a Washington-based PR guru and former Bush White House deputy press secretary, orchestrated the ill-conceived character attack on Kennedy, sources said Sunday.
You don't get to be a deputy press secretary in a Republican White House without backstabbing half-a-dozen of your "good friends" to get there. It's a prerequisite for the gig. So when it came time to dump his "good friend" Caroline Kennedy, he hired an expert to do the dirty work.

  1. Are ya sure now?

    Seems to me that there's just a lot of mud flinging going on amongst a bunch of political hacks (and in Kennedy's case, wannabe political hacks).

    But that's Democratic party politics in NY.
