The Character Assassination Begins

Perdue began the race to November with a disingenuous gut punch, promising a chunk of the surplus to education. "Too, little, too late," was Taylor's response. Then, today, I noticed the first volley in what is likely to become a consistent undercurrent for the Perdue Campaign.

Over on Peach Pundit, Erick Erickson has already begun comparing Mrs. Taylor to Mrs. Perdue. Some dems responded that the character assassination wouldn't work. I hope they're right, but it took The Perdue Team less than a week to begin to toss these bombs.

This is not what the election should be about, but it seems that the purveyor of the "Rat Ad" intends to "go there." Check this post and the comment stream. I fear that where that came from, there is much , much more in store.

It's tough being the spouse of a political candidate these days. Sascha is an accomplished woman in her own right. Something tells me that she'll be tough enough to weather the storm.

Yes, it's a tough assignment. I wish her the best. Brutal can backfire.
