Well, I hate to say I told you so. But, my God, I told you so. The real debate today seems to be (and bear with me, because this is technical insider political talk) over whether the magnitude of Condit’s public relations catastrophe is more appropriately compared to the 12.5 kiloton blast that leveled Hiroshima in 1945 or the 15 megaton hydrogen bomb which gouged a mile wide whole in Bikini Atoll in 1954.
I was gonna call Condit spokeswoman Marina Ein to get comment on whether they’re officially in the Hiroshima or Bikini Atoll camp. But as far as I know, she’s no longer returning my calls.
