Just to show that bastardry is no respecter of party, here is Cujo at Slober and Spittle invoking something that is near and dear:
The DNC is using guilt by association as the basis for its counter-argument. I've criticized this sort of argument when the Republicans used it. It's no more defensible when Democratic Party officials use it. Questioning the loyalty or motives of critics is a way of deflecting the observer from the fact that there's really not much evidence to back up the argument. Lawyers have a wonderful saying that applies to arguments like this:
When you have the facts on your side, pound on the facts. When you have the law on your side, pound on the law. When you have neither on your side, pound on the table.
