Those Meanines

You expect to have some exceptionally contentious advertising in political campaigns. It's interesting that Kerry's campaign manager called Cheney "mean." Then the Kerry campaign puts out a picture like this:

In case the link is broken to the picture, it is a photo of a downs syndrome child in a Special Olympics race with Bush's face pasted over the top. The caption says, "Voting For Bush Is Like Running In The Special Olympics; Even If You Win, You're Still Retarded"

Completely reprehensible! These are the people who claim to care about the underdog putting out an ad against Bush like this. They doesn't attack him on the issues. They don't attack his character. They just resort to name-calling at the expense of a special needs child.

The democrats should be ashamed. Leave our kids alone!

Not that you really seem to care about facts, but that ad was almost certainly not put out by the Kerry campaign. That image has been floating around the internet for years in various forms.

It could have been made by any 10 year old with a computer. Get a grip.

Just to prove my point... here is one of the many versions of that have been on the net for years.

You might want to reserve your blind faith for your religion. It has no place in politics.

That the image has been around is immaterial. The fact is that Tennessee State Representative Craig Fitzhugh's campaign office, in campaigning for John Kerry has distributed this. My source:
