The Athens News reprints a Columbus Other Paper story which purports that Republicans are better at producing negative, slimy campaign ads than Democrats.
The worst two campaign ads ever were produced not by those Republicans hatemongers, but leftist Democrats. The LBJ "Daisy" commercial which claimed that a vote for Barry Goldwater was a vote for nuclear holocaust and, in my mind, the worst of all: the "Chains" ad. Used against George W. Bush in the 2000 campaign, the NAACP accused then Texas Governor George Bush of complicity in the dragging death of a black man.
Compared to that, Republicans are pussy cats.
