Bush Rape Case: Is It an Inoculation?In a BuzzFlash News Analysis, it is suggested that the filing of a ludicrous lawsuit against Bush for rape could benefit Bush in the long run. "It's called 'inoculating an issue,'" says BuzzFlash. The example of Jim Hatfield is given. According to the theory of Soft Skull founder Sander Hicks, Karl Rove probably fed the information about Bush's cocaine bust to Jim Hatfield knowing about Hatfield's criminal record so he could then turn around and discredit the issue by discrediting Hatfield. If it was what in fact happened, it worked beautifully. After Hatfield was fed to the dogs, none of the nation's well-behaved media would go near the issue.
