A Democrat Ate My Baby
Update: You want to see a face from the other side? Tell me we don’t have to take these pathetic losers down.
A Democrat ate my baby!! Does that sound like an outlandish, silly claim? Obviously it does.
Do we want our politicians resorting to what seem like over the top, outrageous, or low political tactics to win an election? I think I speak for many moderates and conservatives when I say we don’t. And in an ideal world, perhaps we should be demanding more than what we might have seen, or will be seeing from some. Unfortunately, it isn’t an ideal world.
I honestly cannot remember seeing a time when one party and the media have so conspired to tilt an election. Day after day of Mark Foley and still that silliness drags on. Yet, you don’t see many stories on North Korean nukes.
Is the Democrat leadership too liberal? Not to worry, certainly moderate is what they’d be. And people believe that because the MSM has told them so. And what about some of the candidates – Bob Casey in Pennsylvania is poised to take a seat in the Senate for PA … and even astute political observers can’t tell you much about him. The stealth candidates we are seeing is a bit amazing to me – Jim Webb, Casey, Lamont, besides knowing he is anti-war the media hasn’t looked at these candidates with anything like a discerning eye. Yet that same media has been tearing apart, or down every Republican or conservative candidate they can get their lens on.
And yes I absolutely do believe that the MSM has abdicated its responsibility in this election more egregiously than I have ever observed before. In some cases they have reduced Republicans to shadow boxing by keeping the discussion away from issues and looking only at Republican faults.
I might not agree that all is fair in politics, at least I don’t believe it should be. But this year strikes me as very different. Center-right and Conservative candidates are fighting a battle with one of any campaign’s weapons, the media, clearly aligned on the other side.
And because of that, perhaps we need to hold our noses or shield our eyes a bit more than what we might like. There are less than two weeks left in what has become a most confounding political season. And if it means we have to get down in the muck a bit to win, I’d rather do that and clean up later than sit and whine like some pathetic loser … I mean, Dem.
Gentility be damned, it’s time to loose the mud of political war.
