Georgia Gov Race — Sleaziest Campaign This Year?

Dunno because the Democrats are character-assassinating everyone obstructing their power.  (Saul Alinsky, anyone?)

But I agree with Neil Boortz — Roy Barnes (DEMOCRAT-GA) has reached a new low.

Over the past few days Barnes has engaged in what I think are absolutely the sleaziest campaign advertisements I’ve ever seen.  Roy Barnes is trying to make women in Georgia think that if Nathan Deal is elected governor they might be raped.

Let me try to paint the image in one of Barnes’ TV ads for you.  There’s a mini-van parked in the middle of an empty parking lot … at night.  The lights are flashing and the alarm is sounding.  You get a close-up of the keys still in the door lock.  As the camera pans back you see a broken bag of groceries scattered across the parking lot.  There’s the spilled milk running along the ground.  In the meantime the announcer tells you that Nathan Deal, Barnes’ republican opponent, supported a law that would allow “sleazy lawyers” to question rape victims while representing the man accused with the rape. 

 Now what DOESN’T Barnes’ ad tell you?  Well … let’s see:

  • The U.S. Constitution guarantees to the accused the right to confront all witnesses against him.  That means that an accused rapists’ trial lawyer gets to ask testimony of the rape victim under oath.  Roy Barnes is a trial lawyer.  He knows this.
  • Barnes’ ad is based on work by Nathan Deal to conform the rules of evidence in Georgia with the federal rules of evidence.  This has been done in 42 of the 50 states.
  • Roy Barnes served on the Georgia State Bar Evidence Committee during the time the Georgia rules of evidence were being reviewed and approved the very legislation that he is slamming Deal for supporting. 
  • Roy Barnes was a trial lawyer … he defended criminals.
  • Nathan Deal was a prosecutor .. he put rapists in prison.

This really speaks to the character of Roy Barnes.  Can you stoop much lower than suggesting to Georgia women that they will end up being violently attacked, abducted, raped and .. who knows? … possibly killed if they vote for his opponent?

I’ve known Roy Barnes for years.  He was a guest in my home when he was last Governor.  I didn’t know he had this in him.

Do Democrats stand for anything but their lust for power and ability to demonize their opponents?

Hope & Change, folks!  Welcome to the Age of Liberal Fascism.  Someone should write a book on that!

  3. Where is the media whining about discussing the ISSUES? Obamacare, taxes, drilling for oil, Iran, the increasing American dead in Afghanistan. No the media wants to talk about witches, frat parties, etc. They say that tea party candidates are qualified, not as qualified as the corrupt, and inept liberal Democrats. haha
    See ya Nov 2nd. I’m bringin the beer.

  4. I was compiling a list of dirty Democrat campaign tricks, but that is really the cherry on top of the sundae of sleaze.

    Not unique, though. Colorado Demonrats have also accused Ken Buck of being pro-rape, and Harry Reid has accused Sharron Angle of being pro-rape.

  5. Well, smearing Iott in OH as well as all re-enactors was pretty crappy, IMO. Then there was DisGrayson who compared Webster to the Taliban for shits and giggles.

    According to GatewayPundit, though, the Party has decided to purge DisGrayson and shift that money elsewhere. No doubt he’ll be shipped off to the Party’s gulag in wherever their version of Siberia is. I ought to print up and sell shirts which read “Grayson? Never heard of him.

  6. Gosh, there’s so many unbelievably sleazy Democrat campaigns — how do you pick just one?

    As for Grayson? He’s a libtard hero now. He’ll get a job on MSNBC or whatever remains of Air America or somesuch.

  7. Oh I forgot that Grayson claimed Webster was all for denying divorces to couples even in cases of violence. He neglected to mention that the item was for adding a voluntary option on the marriage license application.

  8. When the going gets desperate, the losers start pounding their basest base. Who looks at such an ad and determines to stay sober on election day and go vote if someone will give him a ride and he still feels like making the huge effort?

  9. More sleaze, White Maryland Democrat Steny Hoyer knuckle punches Black Republican opponent Charles Lollar during a debate. I wonder if he’ll be charged with a hate crime.

  10. Steny did not call him “boy” or the “n” word, so the official ruling by the political correctness watchdog committee of left wing righteousness is that it was a series of love taps promoting racial harmony.

  11. I live in Georgia (the Battle Zone), and after every local commercial break, I feel like I ought to take a shower. the ads used to be equally “attacky” (and just plain tacky), but I think Nathan Deal has figured out that Barnes is digging his own hole deeper by going so negative. Deal is actually producing ads saying what he wants to do with our state, while Barnes abandoned his “what I want to do” type ads long ago–mostly because people pointed out he was promising the whole candy store to every special-interest group who would listen. So now Barnes is non-stop “Deal is corrupt! Deal wants your wives and daughters raped! Deal is the Anti-Christ!” etc. etc. etc.

    I wish Karen Handel had won the Repub primary, but Deal will be okay. Re-electing a failed governor like Barnes, as Boortz once pointed out, would be like marrying your ex-wife.
