Entering the Backward B Phase of the Campaign

Views

The final week of the campaign is starting to remind me of the last week in 2008 when the McCain/Palin campaign went into full-out ‘Obama-loves-terrorists’ mode and ended with unknown McCain campaign volunteer Ashley Todd scratching a backwards B on her cheek to simulate the feral and pro-Obama black gang-bangers who would run America under the new Obama regime. Today the Romney campaign, which days ago seemed to have Florida close to wrapped, went on the air with a new ad claiming that Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro (actually Fidel Catro’s niece apparently) are “endorsing” President Obama.
