Donate for DNC "Dirty Tricks"

The DNC is gearing up for 2008, requesting public records on potential presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney's spokesman says it will cost "tens of thousands of dollars," which will be charged to the DNC, to provide fodder to the "dirty tricks attack squad."

So, now aboveboard opposition research is dirty tricks.

I always thought dirty tricks were things like: starting whisper campaigns about child molestation, miscegenation, or mental illness; pretending the opposition party is bugging your office; thwarting a "get out the vote" campaign with hang up calls; shredding registration forms, tricking people to register with a particular party; writing an entire book of lies to smear a political opponent (three more links).

Are my standards too high?
