“Back Off!” Don Rumsfeld snarled at the American People, saying in effect, “You have no role in our ‘democracy.’ Now move along. There’s nothing to see here.”
Karl Rove throws heaping mountains of slime:
“Call me, Harold!” (White Playboy woman with heavy make-up to African-American Senatorial candidate Harold Ford in Tennessee; another Corker ad features jungle drums beating as it describes Ford)
Michael J. Fox is “exaggerating the effects of the disease…. It’s purely an act…. This is really shameless folks…. Either he didn’t take his medication or he is acting” (Rush Limbaugh about Parkinson’s sufferer Michael J. Fox who is defending embryonic stem cell research to heal his condition and supporting Missouri Senate candidate Claire McCaskill).
“Triple-X rated” (Dick Cheney’s wife Lynn, herself an author of seamy sexual novels, attacking Webb’s prize-winning novels for adult content to defend avowed Confederate-sympathizer George “Racial Epithets” Allen)
“Democrats will raise your taxes and surrender to the terrorists!” (Senate Majority Leader Billl Frist — and virtually every other Republican Leader, all of whom thinks Americans who vote for them are really, really stupid)
“The terrorists win and America loses” (President George W. Bush attacking the Democratic Party which he purposely calls the “Democrat” Party to mock it)
The slime is massive and goes to all three of the Senate races that will determine control.
But what if, after throwing bucketfuls of slime, none of it sticks?
Will Americans actually vote to take their country back?
Or will we “Back Off!” as our snarling Government has demanded we do?
Meanwhile, your taxpayer money continues to fund the very Iraqis who murder our troops. Explain that to the parents of our dead American heroes that Cheney, Bush, Rove, and Rumsfeld et al continue to allow to be mowed down in the thousands so they don’t have to admit they made a mistake. Still think we should stay the course?
