Originally posted by OlFuzzyBastardLook, the problem with the Willie Horton ads wasn't the issue raised. The problem with the Willie Horton ads was that they were a clear-cut case of race-baiting and denigrating stereotypes. To imply that Al Gore started it is to imply that Gore race-baited Dukakis in the primaries. The furlough issue is not what's controversial (or the reason we remember) those commercials
Funny, that's the main reason I remember the commercials. Oh, but I do remember some bitching from people about the ad being racist. If the ad were about a Asian who had committed the same crime I wonder if there would have been the same outrage. Or a white guy. But a bunch of people bought into the idea that an ad pointing out the crime of one black man (which he WAS guilty of) somehow insinuated that ALL black people were criminals and completely ignored the fact that this was due to a shitty program that Dukakis supported. Thank heavens voters figured out Bush was a racist and gave the election to Dukakis. Oh wait...

Yeah, but the pictures of Kerry on Bush's site are infinitely more hilarious...and, of course, they prove that Bush is the ONLY BASTARD running a dastardly evil and hurtful campaign against his opponent, right?

I certainly shall. I don't believe hardly anything that comes out of John Kerry's mouth. I think he's a sleazy dirty politician prone to stretching the truth to the very limits of its malleability.
That said I still think he's a hell of a lot better choice than Bush who I think is a sleazy dirty politician prone to stretching the truth to the very limits of its malleability, and also tends to make lots of decisions that I disagree with 100%.
They're both lying balls of shit with dirty sleazy allies. I think Kerry is more likely to support and sign legislation and make decisions that I am in favor of over Bush, and less likely to say things that will make the majority of the world and many of our allies despise us. As my mother said "I would vote for a chimp in a suit over Bush." I did vote for a chimp in a suit over Kerry in the primaries. But he's who I'm stuck with as the only person who can get rid of Bush, so I'm supporting him to the hilt. Kind of a depressing way to think about politics, but it's what we're stuck with.
