The Potty Mouths of Political Advisers

The Post has the obligatory story examining whether or not Jim Webb is, like his republican Senate opponent, somehow racist (we already know he’s a woman-hating “fiction writer”). Whether or not Webb at one time used an inappropriate racial slur is a far cry from cutting off the head of a deer and shoving it into the mailbox of the nearest black family. One is insensitive; the other is assault.

But take a look at the juvenile pissing contest between the representatives on each campaign:

From the Webb Camp:

“They are pathetic individuals. They are beneath it. They are slime,” she said. “Here we are trying to talk about the issues. They are completely and totally desperate.”

And representing George Allen, from the right:

“They wouldn’t know an issue if it hit them square in the face,” he said.

If the Allen campaign is slime, how could it be “beneath” its desperate flailing against the Webb campaign? And while the other side is basically calling your guy a slimeball, racist asshole, you’d think “political adviser” Chris LaCivita could do a little better than: “Yeah, well, the don’t know what an issue even is!” What the hell is that? It’s stupid and lame and pathetic and slimey.

Whoever wins, we all lose. But if Allen loses, we all lose a little less.
