GOP Congressional Caucus Chooses Slime

leave a comment »

NY Rep Steve IsraelThis week the RNCC (Republican National Congressional Caucus) posted a campaign video claiming Democratic Rep Steve Israel is an anti-semite because he supports The Occupy Wall St movement.

DNCC Head Steve Israel is Jewish, for heavens sake! He’s also the former head of the Institute on the Holocaust and the Law.

Regardless, the RNCC chose to slime Steve Israel in a Republican campaign video intended to discredit the Occupy Wall St protests as well as Rep Israel. According to Gallup, 54% of Americans support the Occupy protests – so I guess that means that 54% of Americans must be anti-semitic too.

Once upon a time in the not too distant past, the GOP was honorable and had a great deal of integrity which is how it got it’s name as the Grand Old Party. But over the last three decades, it’s chosen to become more sleezy and slimy in its campaign tactics.

It’s sad to see the Grand Old Party descend so deeply into the mud. Lincoln and Eisenhower would be ashamed of their party.
