    All's fair in love and war. It is rather funny when you think about it. Almost all candidates campaign as someone other than they are, they simply repeat a set of slogans that could be summed up in maybe ten tenets or less of their respective party. Once elected reality sets in and they cannot do either the insane or the sane as on the opposite side are the sane and the insane. Our politics has become an enormous impasse where the only agreement is to build more bombs, create more security and whine about the other side. Soon we will be not only a gated community but a gated nation.



    "Such tendencies in American Life as isolationism and the extreme nationalism that usually goes with it, hatred of Europe and Europeans, racial, religious, and nativist phobias, resentment of big business, trade-unionism, intellectuals, the eastern seaboard and its culture - all these have been found not only in opposition to reform but also at times oddly combined with it. One of the most interesting and least studied aspects of American Life has been a frequent recurrence of the demand for reforms, many of them aimed at the remedy of genuine ills, combined with strong moral convictions and with a choice of hatred as a kind of creed" Richard Hofstadter circa 1955, 'The Age of Reform'

    What's funny is that you're ok with it.... I wonder if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was conservatives playing this dirty trick, whether you'd find it funny then.

    Personally, I would find it disgraceful - no matter who was perpetrating it.

    Spoiler candidates aren't anything new.

    Both parties play that game.

    Not as sleazy as the GOP backing Lieberman over their own candidate.

    ^^^ This is exactly why I despise fucking morons who support either the Dems or the GOP. Just because they both do it, and because they've 'always done it' does not make it right or acceptable.

    How the fuck anyone thinks this behavior is ok is beyond me. It corrupts the election process - how in the hell is that ok? I don't care who it benefits, or how many times which party has done it... it is not OK.

    Look at how Dems like Obama and Andy Cuomo pretend they're fiscal Conservative when they campaign, it's a classic Democrat lie.

    I'll bet Midcan was all upset about Alvin Greene in South Carolina. (It's a plant!)
