Comments: Politicing

Unfortunately, mud-slinging works. Otherwise they wouldn't spend so much time doing it.

I like the ones that tell me that So-and-so is bad because he stands for damned near everthing I believe in: pro-gun, pro-life, low taxes, very little government involvement in my life... ie, a big mean ol' Conservative.

I think that is true in all states getting ready for the elections.

The mudslinging is even greater in states like Tennessee and Missouri. They are getting down and dirty...and not in a good way.

At least you have an election. In NC there are 170 seats in the General Assembly that expire this year. Less than 70 of them even HAVE an opponent. Of those 70, about 60 have token opposition -- the name is there, but they will be lucky if they get more than 15% of the vote. Of the remaining 10, about 8 of those will have at least a 15-point victory (57-42). That leaves about 2 (of the 170 seats) that MIGHT actually have a competitive election. It blows goats.

Wes - I know what you mean. In Wisconsin, they tried smearing Gov. candidate Mark Green by saying "he supported Bush over 90% of the time".

Dude, that's a feature, not a bug.
