Disgusting GOP ad in GA
before Republicans get too self-righteous about that ad, take a look at this one that Republican challenger Saxby Chambliss is running against Democrat Max Cleland in Georgia. The ad luridly hacks away at Cleland for being soft on defending America and says Cleland is lying when he says he has the "courage to lead" and defend the United States.For the record, I think Baucus' ad in Montana crossed the line, though it seems increasingly clear Taylor used it to quit the race with some modicum of pride (losing to a Democrat in Montana can't be good for the ego). The issue was legit, but the imagry was designed to ridicule Taylor. That doesn't jive well with me.
But Baucus' doesn't come within a million miles of Chambliss -- a chickenhawk accusing a triple-amputee of being soft on defense. The arrogance! Cleland is a national hero, having proved his courage under enemy fire in a way most of us will never understand. Chambliss is slime (what was his excuse? Did he have "something better" to do during Vietnam?). What were his people thinking?
I will be extra happy to see Chambliss' ass nailed to the wall on election day.Posted October 11, 2002 04:51 PM | Comments (19)
