  • "No such thing as bad publicity" is for people in the entertainment business, not politicians. :-)
    • Hmm ... what is it for the politicians now? Oh, yes: "A politician can overcome anything except a live boy or a dead girl."

      I seem to recall that Ed Kennedy disproved the latter.

        Edward/Ted. Regardless, it is possible to overcome anything (Congressman Gerry Studds disproved the former), but it can take time. Trent Lott's statements of late last year didn't sink him permanently, but they seriously damaged him. The point isn't that these things cannot be overcome, just that there is nothing good about certain types of publicity, if you're a politician.
