Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) faces an uphill battle to retain her seat. Her response? Landrieu is attacking her opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). Here is an ad Landrieu’s campaign released Saturday:
According to Democrats, and the mainstream media, it is Republicans (particularly conservative Republicans) who resort to such tactics. Yet, Landrieu’s ad is void of a single issue. When the Washington Post agrees that a Democrat ad has gone too far, that’s saying something!
Yet, what can the Louisiana (or national) voter expect? Sure, Republicans go negative … even nasty. It’s just that they aren’t so sanctimonious about it.
It’s not clear, though, how many people who see the Landrieu ad will, like me, find and then watch the whole nine-minute Cassidy speech. The Landrieu people are hoping not many.
Expect more nastiness from the same candidate (Landrieu) who not so subtly implied that Louisianans who voted for Cassidy were racists and sexists.
