As Wall St melts down…

and the auto industry is worried about how to compete after so many reckless years of producing gas guzzlers and the country is stuck by one major environmental disaster after another, Republicans are following their tried and true practices of attacking the person rather than the policies.

They don’t have good arguments on their side: the last eight years of GW Bush have been a disaster for Main Street. There’s no denying it, and they no longer even try. The Bush Administration has totally lost its credibility. And the entire Republican party is tainted by him and the politics of unregulated greed.

So, now they resort to personal attacks, trying to poison the minds of the electorate. This race has been injected with everything that appeals to the worst of human nature and psychology: sexism, racism, fear of the “other”, lies and distortions. “If you don’t have good policies, use slim.” These are the same tactics Bush used against McCain and Kerry and Gore. And the American people fell for it.

And look what we got! Everyone happy now?
