MSNBC: Liddy Dole Facing "Avalanche of Criticism"

Endangered Republican Senator Liddy Dole, who is facing the fight of her political life in North Carolina, is getting hammered for her scurrilous and over-the-top attacks on her Democratic opponent Kay Hagan. Take a look:

This attack by Dole is totally outside the bounds of acceptable campaign behavior, with the closest thing coming to mind being her predecessor Jesse Helms' despicable "Hands" ad against Harvey Gantt in 1990. Faking a candidate's voice to make it seem as though her opponent said "There is no God"? Unacceptable.

It's time to fight back. Head over to the MyDD Road to 60 Act Blue page and make a contribution to Hagan's campaign now. At present, Hagan has received 172 contributions through the page for a total of about $6,000. Let's get that donor number up to 200 by tomorrow night and send the signal that this type of baseless mudslinging will not be tolerated in this country. Make your contribution today.

By the way... We were at 152 donors earlier today, so we're half way to the goal. So just a few more contributions will put us over the top.

Liddy Dole Facing "Avalanche of Critics"

Typical Republican from the era when that was their election model. How many times did you hear the rant from the Lee Atwater/ Karl Rove philosophy that attack ads worked all the time for any Republican no matter what their stripes. Maybe like the old bag type cellphones that era is now past. Maybe Dole will be a victim of the new paradymne that Rove is gone (figuratively) and Atwater is dead (literally)

Re: Dole Facing "Avalanche of Criticism"

Lowest of the low things to do, and it just so happens I'm watching Chris Matthews sharing appalled reactions with Chris Cillizza as I'm writing this. They are airing Kay Hagan's rebuttal ad in which she states at the end: "I don't think bearing false witness against a fellow Christian is the way to end this campaign". Perfect, Dole is finished in politics.

Re: MSNBC

At least affirmative action was a legitimate political issue!  This is straight from the gutter.

Poor old woman.

She needs to go back to the Watergate and kick back with Grampa Viagra.

Sorry

People who think the word atheist is a slur don't get my money.
