The learned discourse of American Politics

How do you cast doubts and aspersions on another without causing the listeners to reflect on your own character?

You get someone else to do the dirty work. There need be no substance at all to an allegation if it is not coming out of the mouth of the candidate.

That whole mode of campaigning seems convincing primarily to the weakly informed and uncritical listener who is glad of any support for the preference with which he is already stuck.
