G.O.P. Wields Iraq as an Issue in Fall Races for the Senate. Republicans have gone on the offensive on Iraq and related national security topics in a handful of tight Senate races in recent days. By Alison Mitchell. [New York Times: Politics]
One of the more sick and perverting thing in politics is to question the patriotism of your opponent. It’s flat out stupid and a childish form of name calling. Anyone running for a major office has ton of community service and work behind them and cares about the country, why would they bother with the job if they didn’t? This years new political issue, is to tie any weapons/military view not in lock step with the administration as anti-military and hence unpatriotic. The sad part is that Conservatives seem to eat this crap up.
