The uglier the negative ads the more desperate the candidate

I saw another Petro attack ad this morning. Basically, the ad consists of a lady asking over and over again "what do you call someone who says ______ but owns stock in a company that ________?" The ad ends by calling Blackwell a hypocrite because he has owned stock of companies that sold or produced products, like the morning after pill, at odds with Blackwell's stated position. As soon as I saw the ad, my reaction was to think Petro must be pretty desperate. Ken Blackwell has been an active and committed conservative for decades and his views on pro-life issues are well known and haven't changed over the years (unlike Petro's malleable positions). Petro has previously run ads blatantly attempting to appeal to the worst kind of race based fears. That ad showed a black man taking stuff intended to represent governemtn services from a white child. Petro has revealed his character in this campaign. He may want to consider switching to the Democratic party. His positions on issues and his style of racial demagoguery would be more at home there.

Steve from A Face Made 4 Radio, A Voice Made 4 the Internet has more on the issues raised in this ad. Steve sums it up thusly:
I have come to expect such dishonesty from the Petro campaign, but that doesn't mean that I have to sit back and let Petro slime a good man.
