Take a gander of this screen capture I made on AOL’s home page in the wee hours of the morning:
It leads to a post about a bad joke a “long-time Pennsylvania GOP official” made about Obama supporters. This is a leading national news story?
At the bottom of the article, the folks at the Huffington Post created a slideshow of “Below-The-Belt Political Attacks”, all but one of which were leveled by Republicans. No mention made of the recent the ad released (and immediately discredited) Obama Super PAC ad accusing Mitt Romney of killing a steelworker’s wife or of nasty attacks made by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, respectively, the Democratic leaders of the U.S. Senate and House.
The folks at the Huffington post are just trying make Republicans look like they’re playing nasty when, in this electoral cycle, it is the Democrats, from the party’s leadership on down, have made hitting below the belt its stock-in-trade.
Oh, and the local Republican official apologized. Mr. Reid hasn’t apologized for calling Republicans evil-mongers. Nor has Mrs. Pelosi apologized for comparing conservative critics to a bacterium causing food poisoning.
