Then it is just downright disgusting. I have not seen the ad (won’t run on my puter for some reason), but any claim that a triple amputee from combat wounds is ‘afraid’ to lead is enough to make my blood boil. The Chambliss campaign should be embarassed if this is as bad as what the write-ups I have read have stated, and Georgia voters should give him a nice swift kick in the ballot box.
Although the Dems seem to monopolize bad taste, the Republicans have some serious jackasses of their own.
I would rather have Republicans in control of the Senate (despite their loathesome stands on a number of issues), but I can’t support candidates that stoop to this level.
For an example of the kind of things about Republicans that drive me up the damned wall, check out this quote (via Eschaton):
Christian Coalition leaders fired up the faithful Friday with a pro-Israel rally and a pitch to renew the group’s power by rousting out the vote in November for conservative candidates.
Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., exhorted the crowd at the Washington Convention Center to vote liberals out of office.
“If you don’t do it, it ain’t gonna be done,” he said. “You will be doing the Lord’s work, and he will richly bless you for it.”
There are a lot of good reasons to support Israel and to vote liberals out of office. The Lord ain’t one of ’em.
