That's the only way I can describe the Kilgore-bot who approved a phony mailer allegedly from Russ Potts and sent to Democratic lists.
I still haven't seen the mailer (though someone has said they will send me one). And I'm eager to see it. I'm eager to see how it matches up against the now-sanctioned Kaine mailer. But even more, I want the Kilgore campaign to explain what possessed them to put a deceitful mailer like this out there in the first place. Was it fear? Was it anger? I'd like to know. And don't tell me it's because politics is a rough business. I know that. But just because it's rough doesn't mean you have to sling mud with your opponent in the gutter. I thought you might be better than that.
So I hope the Kilgore campaign is ready with its $100 fine (payable to the State Board of Elections). And I hope they are prepared for a Commonwealth Attorney's investigation as well.
Have I mentioned how much I miss George Fitch?
