It's not that the Clinton's don't squash stories like this, it's that you jump with glee at the chance to point out the Clinton's dirtier side, and yet seem to want to just gloss over McCain's. It looks just a wee bit hypocritical.

That's impossible. I have been reliably informed on FYM that, in the US, the 'c' word is exclusively used as a term of abuse directed at women.

Cuts both ways. Have you ever seen a liberal poster start a thread about the rape accusation made against Bill Clenis?

big D-

Look up proportionality in the dictionary.

Clintons are synonymous with dirty, John McCain isn't.

Prior to his presidency Clinton was certainly not synonymous with dirty. It took 8 years in office with an opposing party focusing a huge amount of effort on tearing him down to get that. (not that some of the dirty reputation is undeserved)

It looks like the dirt is beginning to come out on McCain. Time will tell just how dirty he is/gets.

D-

Yep, and we're not worried.
The Clintons have lowered the bar so low, Mccain looks like a boy scout, and the Clintons thugs.

It's been pointed out in the other thread that it's extremely unusual to be used against men in the US, which does in no way mean there are no exceptions.
Would be the same with the German equivalent, by the way.
