call me

So, not having television or ever living in a particularly competitive campaign district for the whole of my life, I haven't closely tracked the descent of televised political ads into the cesspool of the ugliest parts of the human spirit, but have you seen this ad running in Tennessee against Harold Ford? Wow. Wow.

That's a new low for American political ads. Come on.

What's just as disturbing to me is the comments below from viewers.

NPR ran a story about the use of Youtube in promoting vitriolic political ads.

It reeks of a hoax.

The Ford ad is definitely not a hoax.

I heard an interview with the chairman of the Republican National Committee commenting on the ad today. It's not a hoax.
