How Low Will They Go?

A Commentary By Auntie Roo

The Dark Forces fired their opening salvo for the upcoming elections with their well co-ordinated campaign around the release of ABC/Disney's "The Path to 9/11". The next stage is now coming into focus; a viral release into the internet tubes of 6 clips from this mockumentary as the " ...ABC footage that Bill Clinton does NOT want you to see" courtesy of the Traditional Values Coalition web site. From some comments I caught at Freeperville, it seems that their weaselly minions are spamming the links around for maximum outreach to wingnuts.

Nothing like using their hatred of the Clenis to get them fired up and frothing at the mouth to get out and vote this fall.

I'm stuck in the internet dark ages on dial up so I haven't seen the clips. And not being a wingnut Bush loving ass kisser, I certainly haven't seen the film. So, I'm guessing that these are parts of the film that have been/should be edited out of it. We won't know unless this propaganda actually runs and someone bites the bullet and watches it to find out.

In case you think the brouhaha over "The Path to 9/11" is as dirty as it's going to get this election, think again. Here's a little tidbit from today's Washington Post that gives us some idea of how much lower the Republicans will go to try to hold onto power. Yeah, I know that it's amazing how far they've sunk already and each day brings another new low, but they haven't yet hit their can't-go-any-lower-than-this rock bottom yet. Now that is a truly sobering thought.

Republicans are planning to spend the vast majority of their sizable financial war chest over the final 60 days of the campaign attacking Democratic House and Senate candidates over personal issues and local controversies, GOP officials said.

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which this year dispatched a half-dozen operatives to comb through tax, court and other records looking for damaging information on Democratic candidates, plans to spend more than 90 percent of its $50 million-plus advertising budget on what officials described as negative ads.

Fasten your seat belts people. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
