  •  The mainstreaming of these attacks makes me sick (8+ / 0-)

    I've seen comments about Obama making "payoffs" to shore up his "base" in the Facebook feeds of my more wingnuttier coworkers, so I know this idea has been percolating in the paracosm for a while. However, it is flat out disgusting that it is getting adopted as the campaign strategy of a major political party. If Romney wins, what does it say about our country? We'd be no better than we were when we fell for the Southern Strategy.

    •  Not just from the party, but Romney's own words... (2+ / 0-)

      I don't recall Bush I going there with his own words, just delegating the Horton attacks to Atwater et al.

      No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
