"In the old days, he told us, we spied on them and they spied on us, and both sides took it for granted; that was part of the game. This time [Watergate] some bastard called the cops. Clearly unethical behavior -- what is the world coming to? Which raises the question of whether such dirty tricks may actually play a positive function in politics, seen not as an exercise in morality but as a way of choosing a leader. If Romney can't even protect his own campaign from infiltration and sabotage, can we trust him to protect the country?" (11/13/12)
