The Silliest Season

The ads being shown around here are getting meaner and more personal, largely divorced from issues aside from the perpetual "scary liberal raise your taxes" bugaboo. I really think what happens this election is going to depend on whether the message the Republicans are trying to send has become sufficiently divorced from reality that people will tune it out. The ads seem sort of anachronistic to me, like something from 1998 or 2000. But, what do I know.
