"Mr. Muskie, is there any truth to the rumor that you are currently addicted to the halucinogen iobgaine?"

Back when we weren't so sanctimonious.

McGovern's 1972 campaign manager, Frank Mankiewicz said "of all the correspondents he was the least factual, but the most accurate."

When you think about it, Thompson did more to derail the Muskie campaign that year than any of those USC thugs on Nixon's payroll. It's unfortunate we don't have anyone like him to make the same hash out of Sarah Palin.

No kidding, especially when Palin practically comes on the market pre-hashed.
