Getting Ugly

I’m deeply wary of the direction the conversation seems to be heading on the Democratic side of the campaign.

A lot of this is coming from different surrogates and associates of the campaigns, so it’s a bit hard to disentangle who’s responsible for what, but that said I think it’s fair to say that the Clinton campaign has consistently taken the low road in this campaign so far. Most recently, that includes their surrogates suing to attempt to disenfranchise casino workers in Las Vegas and them trotting out the odious Bob Johnson to (once again) make insinuations about Obama’s past. Cute.

Interesting tidbit, from which you can draw your own conclusions. One day after Obama won Iowa, a new smear email started circulating which cast aspersions on his hometown church, and accused him of being an anti-white racist.
