I know you are but what am I?

Lot's of name-calling going on as the Iraq debate continues. Here are examples of attacks of a more personal nature. These do not include nasty attacks about the actions of others; just personal attacks:

  • Reid calls Cheney the "chief attack dog" [Side note: Reid says he is not going to get into name-calling and then calls Cheney a name in the same sentence. ""I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody who has a 9 percent approval rating. ... I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with the administration's chief attack dog," Reid said after being asked about Cheney's remarks."]
  • Cheney says Reid is making decisions for his own political power: "It is cynical to declare that the war is lost because you believe it gives you political advantage."
  • Kennedy accuses Cheney of playing politics and deception
  • Reid calls the President "obstinate" and "the odd man out" and "brusque" and being in "a state of denial"
  • Cheney says Reid, through his comments, is "uninformed and misleading"
  • Reid talks of the Bush administration's "incompetence and dishonesty"
  • Kucinich accuses Cheney of manipulation, fabrication, and deception
  • Kennedy of Cheney: "Vice President Cheney is the last person in the administration who should accuse anyone of making uninformed and misleading statements"
