Truth in Advertising

January 27, 2008

I set up a Google Alert for Mike Huckabee, but one of the blogs it found was a Romney site.  I went and read lies, half-truths and slander against my Mike.

Now, I don’t want you to think the site was run by or endorsed by the Romney for President committee.  Instead, it was a bunch of posters who  liked to shade the truth and quote one another as “references”.

They make attempts at humor by butchering the names of opponents.

I should have known better.  It was partisan propaganda, and anytime anyone tried to add facts and objective reasoning to the post, the reply is more often than not an attack on the poster’s character than reasoned discussion.

I choose instead to follow the advice of candidate Mike Huckabee.  No negative campaigning.  No personal attacks.  Just truth.

What a welcome change.
