Get a load of this.

The ad, which ran during Sunday’s Patriots game, urges voters to support McMahon onthe Independent Party line, saying it’s OK for them to back her and the president she villifies.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican,” says one of the people in the ad.

“You don’t always have to agree on everything,” says another, “but you agree on the most important things.”

Goal Thermometer
This is from the candidate who supported the Blunt amendment to let employers decide if you could have family planning coverage in your insurance. She signed Grover Norquist's pledge in her 2010 race. She and her husband have given $150,000 to Restore Our Future, the pro-Romney Super PAC. She thinks hospitals should be able to deny emergency contraception to rape victims. She thinks Social Security should have an expiration date. She wants tax cuts for the wealthy and bare bones domestic spending.

But she wants Connecticut voters, who are likely to give President Obama a 10 or 15 point advantage on election day, to think she's on board with him. That putting her in the Senate would not be creating just one more vote to block all of his policies in the Senate.

This election has been remarkable for the cynicism, the lying, the brazen flip-flopping and obfuscation. It's been rife with Republicans, who like the man at the top of the ticket, will say anything, anything to get elected. McMahon is right up there with the worst of them in this.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
