RNC To Continue Running Ad DeWine Knows Makes False Claim About Brown
Click here for the whole story.

<snip>

Sen. Mike DeWine (R-OH) has pulled an advertisement that his campaign agrees made a false claim about his Democratic opponent, Rep. Sherrod Brown. Sadly, an ad from the Republican National Committee making a similar false claim is still running.

1. I wonder if this is deliberate?
Corker and DeWine doing the same thing. I wouldn't waste spit on a republican but they are demonic. Is the latest ploy to run party ads which are down right rotten so their candidates can run against the party? Can distance themselves from the party, therefore look honest? Jeez, they are diabolical. rove would pimp his son to save the house and the senate.

3. it's awful coincidental
but dewine's reaction (or non-reaction) was much different than corker's.

in other words, if it's orchestrated, it's not very well orchestrated.

2. Apparently they are doing this all over the USA
Here in Iowa's First District, there is a very close race for an open seat and the rncc has been running an ad tieing the Democratic candidate in with the communist party. The repub has come out and said he doeasn't agree with the tone of the ad, but refuses to renounce it or ask the rncc to pull it. So they are indeed sneaky bastards who should be stopped.

4. How very odd
I recall ads run against Republicans that drew controversial conclusions from a fact set. And because the conclusions weren't 100% guaranteed, the GOP squawked that they were false, and lawyers sent off letters to local stations that warned that they could be subject to a libel suit if they didn't stop running the ads (or if they ran the prospective ads in the first place). Station after station and newspaper after newspaper knuckled under to the threats.

But demonstrably false ads by the RNC run merrily on, and the stations and newspapers say they can't be responsible to track down every little factoid in the smear job. After all, can you really, truly prove that when he's alone Democratic Candidate X doesn't eat puppies?

Made the same point as JABBS on last night's show, for what it's worth.
