OK...there's one.  But as the ship was going down, some people are simply 
looking for cover.

I don't believe "bombarded" with calls.  Again, people looking for cover.

What they are probably more furious about is that it got played like it did 
in the press...and the fact that it originated with someone *inside* the 
campain who had let the information out.

As the campain wound down, it was turning into a circular firing squad.

How about if they simply asked a neighbor?
