This won’t be a civil campaign. You can be sure that the DFL will pull out all the stops to rip Crack apart personally, including his family. And Nolan, even if he wanted, won’t be able to do a thing about it!

One need only look at the Obama campaign for example after example of how ugly a campaign can get. It’s true Chicago politics on display for everyone to see and is below the dignity of a sitting president. I was going to say voters have a real choice in November because the candidates have real differences as far as where they intend to take the country, but I can’t say that. Why? Because I have no idea what Obama’s plans are. He won’t say. He won’t talk about his record and he won’t talk about what we can expect if he’s re-elected. So his campaign has nothing left to do but unleash vicious and shameless attacks on his opponent. Democrats have been rabidly seeking revenge since their last Messiah was impeached and the discourse has degraded from then until what we have today, so I’m not surprised, only disappointed.
If you’re passionate about something, I don’t mind a little incivility if you’re being honest. If you feel so strongly about something that you get worked up over it now and then, that’s okay by me. What I don’t like is feigned civility for its own sake. That’s just being phony. Go hang out with liberals and so-called progressives, if there are any left, who value style over substance and aren’t interested in real dialogue.

No great effort is required to suggest some problems with Cravaack. His anti-government and union Tea Party program looks a little silly when we consider his 80K snoring disability pension from a union negotiated contract, and his access to all kinds of government medical benefits as a veteran and congressman.
Then there’s Paul Ryan going to college on his deceased father’s social security benefit. Let’s trash Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid and distribute Ayn Rand novels to all.
