There is a House of Rep. seat in NM for which two women are running. Their ads have been running for weeks, now. So far, there has been NOT ONE SINGLE AD that addressed issues only. EVERY AD has thrown mud. That's all. Just mud. Two Women! Ok, maybe that's extreme - the mud in each ad is flavored by some issue...but that still does not make them palatable. And to have this sort of campaining coming from two WOMEN makes me doubly mad. AARRRRRGH!
A sister blogger, Janet, reminded me of this site that may be useful to you in the upcoming election season; please check it out. FactCheck.org When I first found them I did some Internet research and found them to be who they claim to be: fact-checkers. Believe me, you're going to need them. And they report on both sides.
Additionally, I strongly encourage you to get your news from more than one source (and I do NOT mean 2 different TV networks)!
