A New Low in Political Advertising

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, I saw the ad you can watch below, run against Congressman Ed Perlmutter, who represents a suburban Denver district in which I do not vote. It claims he voted convicted rapist to get Viagra paid for by the health care law. It is run by a group of scumbags who call themselves American Action Network, headed by former Senator Norm Coleman, and apparently is being run against Dems around the country.

There is no provision in the health care law. Tom Coburn introduces an amendment to the health care bill to say that no convict can get Viagra as a ploy to send the bill back to committee, and to give his slimy cohorts the opportunity to spread this nonsense. Read about it HERE.

Anybody who would run an ad like this deserves to be stripped naked and dragged behind a Prius for about 10 miles. Here are the board members of this organization of shitbags. If you see one of them, at the very least, kick them in the nuts!
