This stuff is disgusting and represents a new low.
No, it's sadly not a new low. Just a different one. The GOP PACs have been as bad or worse. Anytime you have groups with lots of money trying to buy an election, you'll get this sort of tripe. It really got bad with the Swift Boat nutcases. That's where the bar was set to near zero. This new BS about Romney is equally low, but it's hardly groundbreaking. It's just the left fighting fire with fire. If you weren't pissed off by the Swift Boat lies, you have no right to be pissed off about this. Frankly I'm disgusted with the whole system. This sort of democracy (and I use that term loosely) is not what I spent 11 years of service to defend. If the American voters would finally learn to read and think for themselves, this sort of despicable campaigning would quickly come to an end. But I see no signs at all that voters are ready to move beyond Huffington or Limbaugh.
