If you have ever seen a court trial, it will be familiar. In trial law, a common technique is to accuse the other side of everything that your own side is guilty of doing.

It is purely a tactic meant to have an emotional effect on the jury. In the case of politicians, it's exactly the same technique, but the "jury" is the voting public.

First rule of trial law is NEVER admit ANYTHING that is potentially damaging to your own side. It is better to tell a stupid lie than to admit the truth. Distract, distort, disdain, deflect, deride, double-talk. All are part of the arsenal.

The smarter 'Crat politicians don't even bother trying to appeal to reason. Ever.
