    Ever stopped supporting a candidate because of his or her use of attack ads? If not, do you think you could if the ad were distasteful enough?

    They don't work well in Oregon, so I seldom see them.

    I wouldn't vote for someone who had nothing good to say about himself.

    They do work well in the rest of the country though.

    Yup. Stopped supporting Bill McCollum for just that reason. If all he had was "Rick Scott is a crook," well that's not enough for me. He's a crook too. Alex Sink is a bigger crook.

    Depends on the DEGREE of grossness.

    I, for one, would have a helluva HIGH tolerance level of voting against ANYONE, ANYTIME who is an Obamarrhoidal LIEbturd.

    However, if you had an ad with Obami Salaami raping an Eight yr old girl.......that would MOST DEFINITELY TURN ME AGAINST the Anti-Obamarrhoids that made the ad.

    But, would that cause me to become an Obamarrhoidal LIEbturd ?

    Answer: NO. I would simply think that the people behind the ad are idiots. And, if Obami Salaami's opponent expressly approved that ad...... then, I'd simply not vote.

    Come to think of it, Mohahahahahahmed, the Historically documented THIEF, & MURDERING RAPIST (he boinked Ayesha when she was a child of 9 yrs) has turned me off......for that, and other reasons......BUT THIS HASN'T TURNED 1.5 MUSLIMS AGAINST THIS ABOMINATION.

    ASSter..... Yours, is the typical Obamarrhoidal LIEbturd ploy of stating a thought FOUNDED ON DECEIT.

    As an Obamarrhoidal LIEBTURD you NEVER supported McCollum....or, probably ANY Republican in your life. So your charade is disingenuous.

    gauntama, unless your posts come with a decoder ring I cannot follow them. Fun as it may be to make gibberish of people's names, etc. I wonder if communicating your POV has value for you as well?

    I will tell you my story. I was working my first state level campaign for a guy I knew personally, and he pulled a dirty trick. I didn't withdraw my support or vote against him, as I thought "everyone does/would do the same thing". I felt all sophisticated and such-like.

    Now? I'm not so sure. We got a good man in office from a policy standpoint, but personally he was riddled with personality "issues".

    I still don't know if the "everyone does it" standard is the right one to apply....but I think if it happened again, I'd walk.

    Politics is a rough and tumble game. Those that can't take it shouldn't play.

    I think it's why they still make Barbie dolls.

    My guy took advantage of an illegal act by another supporter. It garnered him the election, no question.

    I am not so sure I should have looked the other way, Defiant.
