The Blame Game
beer, meetmeme, Backyard
Most of my friends acknowledge when they mess up. You own up to it, you learn, you move on. Not so in Congress. No, the Republicans try to muddle the message, surround themselves with children so as to prevent hard questions from being asked, and then, when all else fails, blame the media and the Democrats.


Oh, and they get Fox News to list the pedophile as a Democrat. Just to be clear, the pedophile is a Republican, and so are the people who covered it up, ignored it, and ultimately hoped it would just go away. And somehow, the Republicans are managing to confuse gay bashing and fucking underage pages. Not sure how they are doing on that front, but if anyone votes for those fucktards next month, they will have managed it.

If pro is the the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?

The "I don't know" and the 'dodge' are getting extremely old.

I listened to two ads last night, one from the Dem who is in the lead, and one from the GOP who is behind by 15 points (according to recent polls). This is for the US Senate, candidates vying to replace Dayton, who is stepping down.

I saw the GOP ad first - Negative ad, attacking strawmen of the opponents's primary campaign issues using FUD. Shows old women on park bench talking to incumbant. Nothing about his record, nothing about his positions.

Then the Dem's ad, about 15 minutes later. No mention of the opponent. No negativity. Just her talking through 3 issues and her position on them and her past experience as Hennepin County attorney.

Next I see the the US Congress race is even more fun - talking about past personal associations is ok when you are beating on your opponent for attending a Farrakhan rally and writing a paper on it during college, but not OK when someone brings up your 1995 indictment of domestic violence.
