Nothing Clever about Winning with Lies and Special Interest Riches -- By Daniel Horowitz, RedState

 (text from within article)

Instead of running on support of bailouts, amnesty, corporate welfare, debt ceiling increases, expansion of the federal government, jettisoning social issues, and tweaking Obamacare (things they support privately or even vote for) they use their superior firepower to portray themselves as rocked-rib conservatives and paint their opponents as liberals.  Remember how Mike Simpson ran ads saying he voted to REPEAL the Wall Street bailout and that his opponent was a liberal trial lawyer?  Their cowardly allies do the same thing.  Just look at Jason Hart’s article about OH-14 to understand how all these factors play together.

Ponder this thought for a moment: political class candidates receive millions of dollars from big government interests precisely because of their support for liberal causes.  Then they turn around and use that money to lie to the voters and sell themselves as the antithesis of their funding sources and their opponents as the epitome of their special interests.

Headed into the next few weeks, this strategy might pay off.  We pray to God that it doesn’t.
But one thing is clear: there is no skill, merit, or virtue in what they are doing.  It is nothing but old-fashioned corruption and lies.
