The return of Willie Horton

In order for bush to win, he’s got to hit hard and relentlessly, truth be damned. It has to be one assault after another, constantly keeping Kerry on the defensive so the conversation never, ever turns to the mess bush has made of this country and Iraq.

Brace yourslef; a whole new series of 527s are about to come out with ads the likes of which we have never seen before, with charges so outrageous, so awful they will make the Willie Horton ads and even the Smear Boat Liars look like a bed of roses. Racism will be the lightning rod of the new campaign; so much for the big tent of the inclusive Republican Party.

I am hoping the media will expose the smears for what they are instead of running their ads on the news and letting Ann Coulter tell us how wise and enlightening the ads are. After giving the SBVFT free reign, they finally realized they were being used. Let’s hope it doesn’t get that far this time, and that they refuse to do Rove’s advertising for him.

It’s going to be scary and ugly from now to November 2nd, and we haven’t seen anything yet. This is all bush has to offer — complete and total destruction of John Kerry to keep eyes off of his litany of miserable failures.

We all knew it was going to be ugly, but this goes so over the top. Time for Kerry to throw away the kid gloves and swing harder than ever before. It’s a pity, but fire has to be met with fire; I don’t want to see Kerry, like Gore before him, finish last just because he’s a nicer guy than bush & co.

Boo, it’s not a matter of quantity. If the GOP spent billions on them and they were truthful I’d never say a word. It’s not the medium, it’s the message. If it’s based on racism and lies, then it’s an issue.
