What The Campaign Will Be Like
Last September, Krugman warned us that this would be one of the nastiest elections this country would ever see. The Bush administration wants to have a regime that lasts a long, long time and they will not go easily. One of their tactics is the tried and true slime the opposition so that you, someone who really doesn't want Bush to win, will be so discouraged and hate the Democratic candidate so much, that you will stay home. And if you feel like this, imagine what a normal (less politically obsessed) American who checks into politics a couple of weeks before election will feel. Dave Johnson has a post today on The American Street that shows you what they will do to destroy John Kerry so even you will be ashamed to vote for him. It is going to be a long, hard campaign, and we better get ready for it.
