It's less than a week until the elections and the TV channels are saturated with political ads. The ads this year have gotten pretty mean and nasty. For example, take the race for senate in Missouri between Roy Blunt (R) and Robin Carnahan (D). In a nutshell, here is how the interation of campaign themes has unfolded.
Carnahan: Roy Blunt is part of the “Old Boy” network in D.C.
Blunt : Robin Carnahan supports the same old failed Democrat policies.
Carnahan: Blunt took money from crooked lobbyists.
Blunt: Carnahan is a lapdog to unions.
Carnahan: Blunt takes candy from children and enjoys torturing small animals.
Blunt: Carnahan wants to kill your grandparents.
Carnahan: Blunt wants to lay waste to the planet.
Blunt: Carnahan wants to turn America into a communist state.
Carnahan: Blunt was a part of Bush’s secret plot to bring down the World Trade Center and blame it on Muslims.
Blunt: Carnahan is the Manchurian Candidate.
Carnahan: Blunt was artificially conceived using DNA from Adolf Hitler.
Blunt: Carnahan is the secret love-child of Satan worshipers and her name adds up to 666.
This may seem bad, but just look at where Carnahan has gone now:
Carnahan: Roy Blunt supported the New York Yankees in the American League Championship.
Folks, there has to be a limit on free speech. Things have just gone too far.
