So here in the state of Washington the mudslinging has commenced full force.
The Republican candidate ran an add noting the link between Tribal Casinos and the Democrat Governor.
The Democrat candidate runs multiple adds specifically accusing the Republican candidate of NOT voting to give unemployment benefits to "victims of domestic abuse who flee their partner" and NOT voting to "require insurance companies to pay for birth control".
As a human being I have three stages of reaction to the Democrats adds. First, I think "how cruel", then I think "How logical, keeping costs down", then I think, "I wonder what else was in these bills that caused Dino to vote Nay".
I'm ok with the government being distant and cold. A government that doesn't give a handout is a government that probably doesn't want to send a SWAT team to confiscate my property.
