    NYT: After learning the social media lesson that sharing is scaring, Republicans are using clips of “The Simpsons” and Elizabeth Warren to energize opposition to Hillary Rodham Clinton from the left of her own party.

    In digital campaigns, conservative groups are sending a steady stream of posts attacking Hillary Rodham Clinton, some of them specifically designed to be spotted, and shared, by liberals.

    This is hilarious.

    This is a dirty political strategy that goes all the way back to Cato and Cicero 2,000 plus years ago. Sun Tzu wrote about it before that. What the hell do you think Democrats are doing right now to all the Republicans?

    Get the F*** over it.

    I guarantee you that if Hillary had a serious potential contender for the primary nomination her faithful followers would already be like a parade of rats deserting a burning ship to a candidate without the baggage she's hauling around. When or if a serious contender does challenge her, Hillary will spend wads of big bucks trying to disparage him or her the same way.

    I mean after all, how did we originally hear about Whitewater. It wasn't the Republicans. I was Jerry Brown in one of the primary debates in 1992. So yeah, both sides do it and have always done and always will.
