What's the deal with all these vicious mudslingers in politics?

Frankly, I find these supposedly FAMILY VALUES political sleazebag campaigners smear tactics, dirty and disgusting. They continue spreading the most vicious ugly rumors and scandals about their opponent. What an example for the world and Americas youth!

A couple of smear tactic I found particularly ugly were an ad by Republicans National Committee, where a video plays a blonde woman says, "I met Harold at the Playboy party," and another where that repulsive Viagra Man, Rush Limbaugh accuses Michael Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson's disease.

If they would spend more time trying to finding, and presenting effective solutions to the American people’s problems, than wasting all their time with this constant private eye tactic of trying to find dirty little skeletons in each others closets, the U.S. might have a chance to once again, experience the American Dream!

God! And to think that these people who are not only running our lives, but also the entire world!

I personally find it tragic that these people are so intent in fighting SAME SEX marriages, when MANY of them are cheaters, womanizers, liars; thief’s, perverts, and wear pantyhose underneath their expensive designer suits!

The House and Senate need a change DESPERATELY, so between the two evils, I'm voting DEMOCRAT!

Sadly, both sides resort to mudslinging for one reason...

statistically, it works.

Consider the so called "October Surprise" of 2000. A couple of weeks before the election, a story broke about then Governor George W. Bush's wild DWI days in college, seemingly making him out to be a drunkard.

Why? Because there were some evangelical Christians out there who would never vote for a pro-choice candidate (i.e. Gore) but by making Bush appear so unfavorable, they were gambling that the evangelicals would sit home that election.

Statistically, it works, and both sides have always done it. I find it discouraging, myself.

Take care...beloved.

But why does mudslinging work? They all do it with each other. So then what all this means is, that the one who plays the dirtiest, wins? How can this be? They are suppose to represent the U.S. and its people.

I've been surfing some web sites, and am more disgusted than ever. Perhaps ignorance IS bliss!!

Ditto what duoraven said. The really sad part is that a recent study showed that the closer the race, the more effective mudslinging is.

I have a solution though. Dave for Dictator, 2008!
Nov. 1st, 2006 05:44 pm (UTC)
And I find it dreadfully sad.

Too bad people like you don't run for president! I have a feeling the world might be much better!
Love you Sweet Stuff!

Rush Limbaugh accuses Michael Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson's disease.

Back in 2002, Fox told Diane Sawyer that he would stay off his meds or manipulate the dosage when he was going to testify before the Senate in order to better demonstrate the ravages of his disease. Rush's comment was that he may well have done the same thing for his political advertisements.

You fall so easily for these things, PG, and it makes me sad. One side will use a sacred cow to make their political statements for them so that the other side looks bad if (and when) they try to counter them. Fox entered the political arena for the Democrats this time; therefore, he should expect to come under scrutiny.
Oct. 31st, 2006 06:00 pm (UTC)
Oh, did you actually see the ad?

It should be right here. The "Playboy" bit isn't there for more than a few seconds.
Nov. 1st, 2006 01:47 am (UTC)
Yes, I saw it on TV.

And so what is all I can sputter!

Better a man who goes to Playboy mansions and sees beautiful women, than a man who emails teen boys with words of love. :o(
Nov. 1st, 2006 01:55 pm (UTC)
Two separate issues.

And so what is all I can sputter!

Why are you making a big deal about the commercial, then? (And you are, it's a big chunk of your post.)

Better a man who goes to Playboy mansions and sees beautiful women, than a man who emails teen boys with words of love. :o(

That's not the choice voters have to make. It's between Ford and Captain Whats-his-name. I wouldn't even know about this Ford gent except for the commercial that's got you up in arms.
Nov. 1st, 2006 05:38 pm (UTC)
I don't know what the hell I'm saying anymore, Dave! The more I surf the web, the more disgusted and confused I become!
Oct. 31st, 2006 06:18 pm (UTC)
Yes, from now until election will be NASTY!! Vote for the person,....not the party....

Hang in there,.....we will survive....We have survived worse....
Nov. 1st, 2006 04:44 am (UTC)
Yes. So very nasty.

I've never seen it as bad as it is now. I'm really worried about this country's future!
Nov. 1st, 2006 12:34 am (UTC)
Have you heard Kerry's latest assinity? saying that basically everyone in the military in Iraq are ignorant boobs? ID like to get close to him one time to kick him in the balls! The jail time would be worth it!

Dont vote a party, Vote for the one who best represents your American beliefs. George Washington in his farwell address warned the country against political partys.
Nov. 1st, 2006 04:42 am (UTC)
Yes I have, but perhaps he meant something else. He was in the military, too.

Honest to God, I become more confused about all this. Just today, I was full fledged Democrat, and changed my mind on the same day!!

I'm leaning toward Democrat, but they want to take away our guns. When I lean Republican, Bush frightens me for what he's done to the Bill of Rights!!

Kerry calls us (military) stupid! Bush insists on keeping our soldier in Iraq where they're being slaughtered!

So confused!
Nov. 1st, 2006 09:21 pm (UTC)
Kerry may have been in Vietnam but as was proven when he ran, his service was less than honorable and when he came home he teamed up with Bitch Fonda and dennigrated all the troops who were there and even said his own crew on his boat comitted war crimes. The ONLY reason he went in was to try and get the support for his run for office like Kohn F. Kennedy did, but he was no where near being like JFK.

John F. Kennedy was not only an excellent Naval Officer, he was an excellent boat Skipper His whole crew respected him Kerry on the other hand could only get one of his crew to support him all the others wanted nothing to do with him cause they knew he was a fake.

Kennedy may have been a Democrat but he was nothing like the ones who claim that mantle now. I would vote for another democrat like JFK in a heart beat but it is a shame there are none.

We are loosing troops yes, but far from being slaughtered. The People who are in the Northern areas love what the troops have done for them. They Love America. They have even built a new University and named it The American University of Iraq.

Here please take a moment and watch this.

This echo's what I am hearing from the sons and daughters of my friends who are and have been there.

Do you not read what is said here? The video ECHO's everything I hear from those people who are comming home from tours over there.

I believe THEM.

And as for your next post you might wanna check on those who place a D after their names. Many of the democrats want to do away with the right to bear arms. and KERRY not KARRY is one of them.

Because the NRA is a supporter of the Republican Right the Democrats are adamant about doing away with guns.

Speaking of KERRY this is not the first time he has dennigrated those in Uniform. He did it after he yellowed out of Vietnam and he did it duruing his run for the Mass. Senate and the Presidency.
Check the records.

Geeeeez cant you guys keep up with facts??? That BS about Bush was proven to be false THAT is why there was a shake up in the CBS newsroom Putting that crap out without checking FACTS. If you talk to any Swifty who was in Country at the time you will learn the facts about Kerry, and how he put himself in for his own awards, and even the Doctor who treated him for his scratch would not endorse it for his purple heart.

My facts are correct and its NOT cause I am a Republican because I am not, I do not claim either party. I vote for a person not a political ideal, but I do lean towards the Libertarian chain of thought. Personal Freedoms and minimal government intervention. I wish you would go back to school and learn the proper terminology and spelling. It should be PAWNS like in a chess game not PONDS... geeeez.

You need some serious help in getting some current facts. The NRA are real gun owners. Where do you get your information? Where ever it is you need to stop cause they are feeding you bad info. The Conspiracy idea is passe.

I have asked my brother if he and the rest of the soldiers are against going to Iraq, and he said no, that they wanted to go. I myself feel very lucky that I finished my tour before I'd have to go to Iraq, but if the timing had been different, I know I would have gone to Iraq willingly.

I never knew that about Kerry. I had read somewhere that he had gotten the Purple Heart.

I watched the video.

If you were me, exactly who are the ones you would vote for?
Nov. 2nd, 2006 03:31 am (UTC)
That is next to impossible to answer because this is a local election basically I do not know who is running in your area. I dont kow if you have any U.S. Representatives, or US Senators up for reelection. Also dont forget that the local elections can be just as important.

It is the local elections that will decide on wether your state and local taxes go up wether there are articles to the state constitution that are needing to be voted on, positions like School Boards City Councils and the like will make local laws that may or may not be what you like.

You should be able to look up on the local TV and Radio sites and see what elections are up in your area and they also should give a good representation of what the candidates stand for. If you have specific questions call the campain staff and ask. They need your votes so they will answer the questions in hopes that you agree with what they stand for.

Dont forget that after the election they work for YOU! I call and write my elected officials often to let them know how I feel and how I expect them to vote. They are NOT there to vote their feelings but the will of the electorate. When they do not vote the correct way I remind them that they can be replaced!

Remember Dont vote republican or democrat, vote AMERICAN, the one who agrees with your views and feelings. The important thing is to VOTE.

Well once again your excellent use of the English language and your extensive vocabulary has "put me in my place." I do notice though that you have deleted your last couple of responses to me so no-one else could read your wisdom. Such a shame.

Be well.

Ohhh so many things I could say about your usage of profanity. As I said I am real, very real. I care less what you think of me I am not here to win any popularity contest. I am not here for you to like. I am here because I am allowed to be here and my opinion is wanted by Playgirl. My likes-dislikes or perversions are not yours to comment on. You discredit yourself by calling me "little boy" and other names since you evidently know noting about who I am.

The simple fact that we could agree to disagree have evidently escaped you. Such a shame because I do enjoy a good spirited debate.

Be well

People wave the flag of family values because they know that this country's dumb enough to fall for it. Just castigate gay marriage and flag burning enough times, and the voters will be on your side, regardless of your past indiscretions. You can fuck around on your wife, but as long as you tote family values with seeming sincerity, people will look past your marital flaws. America's not that bright, but then again, we re-elected Bush and would probably do it again if Hilary Clinton ran cause people think she's a bitch. Better to have an incompetent, borderline insane, fiscally irresponsible asshole in charge than a bitchy woman, eh?

This country's something else, innit?

Thank you! You have said just about everything I wanted to say, but just didn't know how to say it!

I'm so SICK of hearing all these people say FAMILY VALUES! I've noticed that the ones who use these to words, are the very worst, because they hide what they've done in their lifetime!
Nov. 2nd, 2006 09:39 pm (UTC)
America is in decline and has been for a while now. Both parties would rather talk about stuff like same sex marriage rather than face the issues that really are hurting this country. Our crushing debt, our declining infrastructure, our weaker economy and place in the world being challanged by China and increasingly the EU. That and a whole host of issues that would require unpopular and very hard choices. The last time any president tried to address our oil consumption levels and try and get us to cut back, we couldn't get rid of him fast enough! Yes Carter had some other baggage too with Iran, but his trying to address real issues doomed his reelection bid.
I am a life long Republican. But these guys have really dissapointed me for years now. We had a chance to fix this country and then they gave us Bush as president. *shakes head sadly* That guy shouldn't have gotten elected as a dog catcher much less president! He is an idiot, a coward and is the last kind of person we should ever even think about electing to any office. No wonder our country is in shambles.

Food for thought...
Someone asked you "why you think that the Democrats are trying to take away our guns" and that That was "a bunch of Republican lies no democrat I know is for that."

Well It was a Democrat that ordered all the firearms Confiscated from the legal gun owners in Louisiana who were within the Hurricane area. The illegle gun owners did not turn theirs in. It is a Democrat that is trying to ban concealed carry in New York City. It is the possible #3 person in the Country if the Democrats take over the House (Nancy Pelosi) who made the statement that she agrees with the U.N. move to try and ban personal gun ownership in the US.

In 2003 it was the democrats that pushed the ban on "assault style" weapons, in 2001 it was the Democratic senators that attempted to close a loophole in the 1993 Brady Act, which allows individuals who would not be able to buy weapons in a gun store to buy them at gun shows, flea markets, and swap meets. There are Gun Ban movements going on right now in Boston and San Francisco, being pushed by Democrats.

All these things and more have been reported by the Media and can be validated by those who do not believe them.

Finally Do not think that if one wears the republican mantel, they are Pro-gun owner. Arnold Schwarzenegger supported the Gun ban in California and Bush supported the extension of the Assault weapon ban as well as did other republicans. As I said before, Vote for the person not the party and the best way to see if they will take your weapons is ASK them and check their records.

fuck the democraps and repugnicans, there are OTHER parties out there, vote for one of them.

you never lived in kommiefornia under the boxer regime did you? there's still an "assault" weapon ban in place, magazines are restricted to 10 rounds and the .50BMg rifle is banned. i call that infringement.

Nov. 9th, 2006 08:02 pm (UTC)
I thought you might like to see this.

Apparently, the "white bimbo" from the commercial is part Mexican. All this uproar, and she's really Hispanic.
Nov. 14th, 2006 02:53 pm (UTC)
Hadn't seen that before. Thanks for the link, and yes, I found it most interesting!

I tell ya', we Latinas are gorgeous! ;o)
