Tidbits From Elsewhere – 9/18/06

Posted by ALmod on September 18, 2006

There’s a wonderful article in the Birmingham News about rehabilitating criminals in Alabama. With so much negative news these days, it’s nice to read something like this. There’s also a nice article about providing free breakfast bars to kids who aren’t able to catch breakfast before coming to school.

Dan is covering the latest Democrat attack ad. These things make me want to vomit, regardless as to the side they’re coming from. Why can’t candidates just stick to talking about the issues? The more time they spend attacking each other, the less time they spend talking about their platform.

The Gun Toting Liberal (still sounds dangerous to me) is talking about Barry Goldwater. I miss those “Goldwater Republicans.”

    Yeah, I’ve about had it with attack ads. They always portray the opponent as a communist or something and show them with a grainy, gray feel.

    I think negative ads show a total lack or creativity, class and a deficit when it comes to explaining yourself.

    Well… you can’t blame a challenger candidate for saying why you should’t vote for the incumbent. However, spending a big chunk of your money going after a senior campaign staffer is a little wierd.

    Most serious voters are interested in the issues, and how candidates stand on them, and they are repulsed by attack ads. My theory as to why they are used is that they work for the very simple reason that serious voters are heavily outnumbered by those who like a feisty candidate.
