Fear and Smear
I got this piece of junk mail today. Isn't it clever? Putting "Don't Let Them Win" between a picture of an obvious terrorist and a picture of recognizable Democrats (plus Michael Moore, to increase the guilt-by-association factor), to convey the not-so-subliminable message that Democrats are terrorists.
On the back is this WARNING, in screaming red: "When Michigan Republicans don't vote... Bad things happen."
Totally missing from the brochure is any information about the Republican candidates, The brochure includes no reason to vote for the Republicans, only a plea that they need Michigan Republicans' votes in order to defeat the Democrats.
What this tells me is that the Republican Party can't think of anything good to say about its own candidates. And if there's nothing good that even their own party can say about them, why should anybody vote for them?
