Down and Dirty

Barack Obama isn’t the first candidate to go ugly in search of votes — but he may well be the first whose reputation for high-mindedness seems not to have been the least bit dented by his bottom-feeding. Both he and his acolytes on the left have dragged our public life down to the vulgar level to which they’ve already dragged popular culture.

Often, the two intersect. Madonna exhorts her fans at a concert to vote for Barack Obama and when some boo, she extends her middle finger. has an ad up that is just the sort of thing Comedy Central types find naughty and delightful — elderly Americans using foul language about Romney. One woman in her 90s promises to “c*** punch” the candidate. Ah, hope and change.
