Our eyes are perpetually glued to the television set. Either by way that we don’t have anything else to do or maybe the new episode of CSI is on. But, regardless of the reasons, the television has our attention.
And in this season of political races, it’s inevitable that we should catch the glimpse of a campaign ad. Very rarely, if only a few, of these ads have substance. More often than not, they are just smear tactics against the opponent.
“My opponent did this, my opponent did that, blah, blah, blah…”
Tactics like this usually have the Amer’can people asking, “when will it all end?” On November 2, 2010, that’s when.
Consider for a moment the Christine O’Donnell campaign pandering to their hateful resentment of homosexuals; labeled Mike Castle as “homosexual”. Effectively stealing the election. This is a “low ball” tactic in my opinion.
Or David Vitter who has been exposed for being in a prostitution ring and in the midst of elections, all has been forgiven. Because politics is politics, and power is power. The assemblage of “the party” is more important than integrity.
But in the end, people will get tired of the mudslinging and will vote for whoever they see as the “better option”, or they will vote for the party. Because after all, isn’t party more important than integrity?
