Hired Gun vs PR Polly

Caught a little of Ken Mehlman vs. John Podesta on MTP, and of course Mehlman's job was to keep on saying that up is down. Podesta was pretty weak about pointing this out, though. Can't the Dems find some good litigator to do a better job of presenting their case?

Mehlman had zero - zip - nada, but Tim Russert (of course) was more interested in throwing him meaningless batting practice "What would Republicans have said if this had happened in the Clinton Administration," than pursuing obvious falsehoods and Podesta rarely roused himself from him torpor enough to contradict Mehlman.

How hard can it be to find somebody who can cut up a guy whose main talent is lying glibly? And why can't the Dems find a few?
