    What they said about him during the election:
    "Murder, robbery, rape, adultery, and incest will be openly taught and practiced, the air will be rent with the cries of the distressed, the soil will be soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes."

    And yet...

    Politics sure has become brutal these days.

    Who said that?

    Who are they?

    Can you give a list?



    What we did say was that he was a barely competent narcissist who will give us retread politicians in power, retread ideas in practice and a long list of broken promises he knew were impossible when he made them

    It was in a major newspaper during the election.

    Do you think political mudslinging has become more brutal through the years?

    Politics gets softer all the time. Really brutal was in the early days.

    There is generally a Darwinian winnowing over time of the politicians who go really dirty. Voters don't like it. What passes for really nasty now was polite discourse 30 years ago.

    What major newspaper? What date?

    Even worse......

    Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
    The dead rising from the grave!
    Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

    Reads like something from the Jefferson/Adams election. That was supposed to have been one of the worst.

    Don't really see too many duels anymore.

    I agree with eggsalad...sounds like something in the early 1800s. Imagine if they had todays media

    Thirty years ago? No way. Back then, compromise solutions were made in smoke-filled rooms and the elected officials weren't 90% occupied with how tough they were going to appear while grandstanding for C-Span cameras.

    Maybe 70 or 100 years ago, the politicians were nastier, but again, the public was kept out of view.
