Steve Schmidt: Just say "Both Sides Do It".
Howard Schultz: But what about...?
Schmidt: Just say "Both Sides Do It".
Schultz: But what if...?
Schmidt: "Both Sides Do It".
Schultz: But when...?
Schmidt: Listen Howie. I know this shit. This is what I do for a living. This is what you pay me for. Under all circumstances, all conditions, irrespective of the facts, your answer is always, always, always "Both Sides Do It". This is holy Beltway writ. Keep your head down and say the fucking words. It never fails. Got it?
Schultz: OK. If you say so.
Schmidt: I say so. Say "Both Sides Do It" 10,000 times and you'll be the next president of the United States. Guaranteed.
And it was sorta working.

Behold, a Tip Jar!
