You know, like the rumor that Harry Reid used to double-date with Jerry Sandusky.
That would be an awful rumor to spread.
Or that Nancy Pelosi sometimes conducted the official duties as Speaker of the House while stone cold sober.
That would be just terrible, to go around spreading that rumor.
Or that Elizabeth Warren knowingly falsified her racial credentials to improve her chances of getting plum academic posts.
That would be a really bad rumor to spread.
So let's not do any of that, OK?
Just so we're all clear about it.
Well, that Elizabeth Warren one is pretty much an established fact. No rumor there.
