(Blogger) Ed Morrissey says the Horton meme should be shot down, and indeed, Dukakis was more responsible for the weekend furlough program than Romney is for Tuttman's decision.

... Well, Romney's going to get a lot of questions about it, and he's going to be left with that answer, that her record suggested she would be tough on crime. He's going to be asked, "If you could be wrong in your assessment of her, could your assessment be wrong on other appointees? How about a Supreme Court justice?"
