Small pleasures

The midterm elections in Illinois will feature a gubernatorial face-off between Judy Baar Topinka and Rod Blagojevich. I'm confident that this will prove to be an exciting campaign, seeing as how both candidates have such funny-sounding names.

For the past few weeks, the Chicago airwaves have been full of attack ads on Topinka. As much as I hate attack ads (or, rather, their prominence in political discourse), I have derived some small amount of satisfaction from one of the more recent anti-Topinka ads, which focuses on her positive appraisal of the job Dubya's been doing.

So, congrats to Dubya on his new job as a political liability for Republicans (finally, a post for which he's actually qualified).

the daily show awhile back showed how in the 2004 election, republicans were touting closeness to dubya as a positive, and rode his wave into office.

now, democrats can use the EXACT SAME ads, only with different tone and inflection, as meaning the polar opposite...

as I told paul tho, it won't matter... we're all still doomed.
