Response to kentuck (Reply #62)

93. I hope you are right but McChinless has amped up the truly nastiness.

Was out in my car running errands yesterday and McChinless has a new radio ad that is literally running after every song about how he has some of her campaign workers and family admitting on audio tape Grimes lied about her support of coal. I'm sure the sound bite is taken out of context and has been manipulated and frankly bogus but the way it is put together sounds really bad. He is also quoting the Washington Post (I know, the POST!) has determined Grimes being the biggest liars since the beginning of time. I listen to an oldies station but I know if he is hitting that radio dial he is hitting all the others, too.

This is what McChinless does every election cycle. About 2-3 weeks before election days he unleashes some horrific rumor or jacked up "issue" on his opponents. His last election had smarmy innuendos that his opponent was gay. That was a hot button at the time with Kentuckians needing "saving" from the horrors of gay marriage. He hits below the belt, not above slathering on huge doses of fear and hatemongering and playing to the lowest common denominator. I hate this man with the passion of a thousand white hot suns and this is the first time ever I won't be able to vote against him. I've move out of state to southern Indiana so I will miss the very satisfying feeling of pulling the lever against him one more time.

To find the national Dems have pulled back on their support is truly disheartening. Grimes could win this thing but not without lots and lots of money to counteract the nasty heading her way. What we have seen so far has just been the appetizer, it is going to get a whole lot worse.

And on edit...

There is a TV ad McChinless is using with Chuck Todd, of MTP, saying that Grimes has lost the race because she won't say how she voted in the presidential election. It first looks like a news item and at the end it has McChinless saying he approves this message. Wonder who gave McChinless permission to use that clip? They should be fired, first for hiring Chuck Todd and second, letting their paid voice say something so utterly ridiculous, and third giving McChinless permission to use that hack's misinformation to skew with an election.
