Surveys of voters routinely return results indicating that the voters detest negative campaigning and wish the "politicians down there in Washington would stop all that bickering and work on the issues". This election season will be a real litmus test of whether or not voters really mean those noble sounding sentiments or they were just trying to look good for the pollster. It's pretty clear which party has campaigned from the sewer. We have Foley 24/7 from Democrat spokespeople and their captive media. We have the ridiculous macaca coverage, the N word claims from 30 odd years ago, we have whispered allegations about a Senator's jewish grandfather. We have Democrat leaders who proudly march in gay pride parades with NAMBLA officials decrying a gay man sending emails to 17 year olds. The same Democrats who confused the Oval Office with their neighborhood glory hole now demand that the Republican leadership resign over one gay man who sent some creepy (to normal people) emails. And did you know that Dick Cheney's daughter was a lesbian?
