Not only are they badmouthing everyone else .....

.... they're spending millions of dollars to do it.
"Politics is probably the only business in the world where they spend the most money when they have the least number of available customers to pitch to," [Evan Tracey of the Campaign Media Analysis Group] said.
Over 600 brand-new ads are being put out for a mere four days. According to the Post, "This final thrust will boost spending on political and issue advertising past $2 billion in this campaign, or $400 million more than in the 2004 presidential campaign. "
I'm just so glad that there's nothing else in the world more worthy of 2 billion dollars ..... otherwise, I might have to be a bit peeved.

UPDATE: WaPo's MediaNote's comments? I believe I can say, without fear of contradiction, that this year is the worst I've seen in terms of smarmy and sleazy spots that take some little kernel of a fact and twist and pound it out of shape until the opponent is rendered as a sex-crazed, tax-raising, criminal-coddling, terrorist-hugging loon.
