Kindergarden Cops

Um, seriously, the Clinton administration is attacking Barack Obama based on an essay he wrote in kindergarden. They follow up with an account of something he did in third grade! I suppose you have to respect the commitment to counterpunching and oppo research (Obama says he wants a new kind of politics, but wouldn't share his toy truck with little Jimmy when they were five — how can we trust him now?) but surely someone must have said "won't this look dumb?" when it was suggested.

I'll be very happy when primary season is over.

UPDATE: That'd be the "Clinton campaign" -- it's not an administration yet!
