Democrat supporters hit bottom, commence digging.

I suppose politics in any country can be a nasty business. This last week has seen some nasty politics in the US.

John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. The Governor of Alaska is now the Republican Party's VP nominee.

It didn't take the 'liberal' bloggers at Kos etc long to go for her.

First, they circulated a rumour that her 4 month old son wasn't hers, but her daughters. (And prior to that, some nasty innuendo).

Then they dredged up a 1986 drink drive offence of Todd's.

Then, when it was revealed her 17 year old daughter was pregnant, she became fair game.

Then there was the snide commentary on the wife/mother/career gal thing. (Now THAT was interesting coming from the supposedly pro-feminist, pro affirmative action left!).

Thing is, it just made the bias of the MSM (main stream media) and the hypocrisy of the 'liberal' left so much more clearer. And it actually seems to have backfired against them.

The satire it inspires is entertaining at least.

I went to look at some of your links. It is "filthy". But then politics is. I have to laugh when we "civilized" countries (so called Western) tell other countries (East Europe, Africa etc.) that they should make efforts and build up democracies.

Yes, politics can be very nasty.

It is though, preferable to what happens when you instead have the tribal/ethnic/religious/ideological (real occasioning death type) fighting you get when you don't have western style factional politics.

What was it that Churchill said?;
"Democracy is the worst form of government - except for all the rest".

The nastiness, I think/hope, is going to work against them.
