I call it dirty politics. . . for some reason the GOP has become very dirty in their tactics.
WASHINGTON - Shadowy corporate figures who cut backroom deals. Stealthy terrorists who drive cabs by day. Immigrants who steal across the border by night.
Politicians are finding no shortage of boogeymen to associate with their opponents this campaign season.
Sure, candidates are tying their opponents to Big Oil and Islamic fascists. And to special interests and partisan bloggers. But they're also doing their best to link their rivals with the likes of George W. Bush and Nancy Pelosi and Tom Delay and Hilary Rodham Clinton
In many areas of the country, Democrats are the ones running ads that feature Bush, whose job approval ratings are stuck in the 30s.
