Dirty Tricks in Politics?

Who knew? has a great video interview with Roger Stone, a veteran of eight presidential campaigns and one of the premiere "dirty tricks" artists out there. From the blurb:

Beginning with his first disinformation campaign in grade school (ironically, aimed at his later idol, Richard Milhous Nixon), Stone learned the ropes as a teenager at Nixon’s Committee to Re-Elect the President (C.R.E.E.P.) and has spent the last 30 years in the political shadows, playing a major role in the “Brooks Brothers Riot” during the 2000 Florida recount and waging a highly public ongoing battle with Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D-N.Y.). As a battle-hardened and scandal-heavy veteran of eight national presidential campaigns, Stone understands the skulduggery and strategems of the modern political campaign like no one else...
He really unloads on Elliot Spitzer, calling him "f---ed up" psychologically" and also talks a little bit about the difficulty of running a sucessful 3rd party campaign. Among other things. Oh and he gives Ron Paul zero chance of winning the GOP nomination.
