    I agree completely that  outside negative ad campaigns have been woefully ineffective to date, but they have almost completely been one sided. There haven't been many examples of Dem oriented Pacs spending at anywhere near the same level to give us much to compare. Harry Reid's Pac spending in the big races in the south seems to be moving the needle. They aren't ridiculous and childish in tone like all the Koch ads seem to be. Maybe the voters are more discerning than we think, or maybe the tone of Republican ads causes the voter to simply tune them out. While we have too few samples to make definitive conclusions so far our ads seem to work and theirs don't. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in this election cycle.
