63 Days: Elizabeth Dole cements her status as the champion of third party attack ads

DAY 63

A new ad today by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) on behalf of Elizabeth Dole cements her status as the champion of third party attack ads. The NRSC, trying desperately to cling to Dole’s seat, is on the air with a baseless attack ad aimed at Kay, while of course ignoring the fact that Dole has voted with Bush 92% of the time and is number 93 out of all her colleagues in terms of effectiveness. But we shouldn’t really be surprised: in 2006, as chair of the NRSC, Dole was responsible for spending over $19 million on some of the country’s most despicable negative ads, and she defended a spot aimed at appealing to racist sentiments. Members of her own party were even willing to admit that Dole took the negativity too far. But vicious attack ads were nothing new for Dole, who stood by silently in 2002 while the NRSC ran exaggerated negative ads against her opponent, and she was silent again this year when her own state party ran a blatantly racist ad in the primary election.

As chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Dole led the Washington-based third party group in spending large sums of money to launch negative attacks against opponents that were called “vicious,” including some with “racial overtones.”

McCain: “Country Last, Me First!”

Now we know that John McCain has been lying to us all along. As the Sarah Palin nomination for Cross-posted from The Progressive Pulse.
Vice-President makes obvious, John McCain has no interest in putting "Country First." Unless, I suppose, that you think McCain actually believes that the barely removed mayor of a hamlet in Alaska is the most qualified Republican to be one beat away from his 72 year old heart and the presidency.

64 Days: Dole's dismal record of protecting working families

DAY 64

This Labor Day Weekend, hardworking North Carolina families do not have much reason to thank Elizabeth Dole. When it comes to Dole's dismal record of protecting working families, it turns out, once again, she’s against their best interests at every turn. She opposed the Family Medical Leave Act for decades, she has voted against raising the minimum wage while accepting pay raises for herself, and she has made it easier for big business to short their employees’ pension plans. Dole even voted against helping displaced workers after casting the votes that sent their jobs overseas.
