I didn't say it was A-OK. It is a typical negative ad attacking an opponent -- disgusting
but pretty normal. Attacking the *voters* of the other party is something new and
something utterly repugnant. If you can find an example of that from the Republicans,
I will be happy to equate it to that.
That a few of us need to be more in touch with our feelings has obscured
a deep truth: many more folks need to be much less in touch with theirs.
