Nancy Gets Nasty....In July

By now most of you have probably seen Nancy Johnson's latest attack ad. If not, just imagine the typical political attack ad full of the usual distortions, scary announcer, and grim music. Johnson's ad also features the usual Republican rhetoric on how Chris Murphy is out to raise everyone's taxes...even on our seniors! Uh, sorry Nancy but you're going to have to do better than that if you really want to scare me.

So the question is, why is Nancy Johnson already running attack ads in July? The only possible answer is that her people have some very bad poll numbers, and they see smearing her opponent as the only way to improve them. The people of Connecticut deserve better from a twenty-four year incumbent, but this is what we should come to expect from Nancy Johnson. You would think that after serving twenty-four years as an elected official, Johnson would have plenty of examples of positive legislation she has passed which she could tout to her constituents. Given her record, however, Nancy Johnson is forced to resort to scare tactics and smear her opponent. But again, this should all come as no surprise to the people of the fifth district who see everyday the out of touch, Washington politician that Nancy Johnson has become. Johnson is hoping she can scare the people of Connecticut into electing her to another term. I think she has underestimated our intelligence.

I saw Nancy's ad last night, it's really disgusting. I wish she would be mature in the race and stop acting like a bratty little kid who loves to spread rumors. Thanks for updating this blog, I appreciate the info.

Well, that just about sums it up. Twenty-four years. That's 12 terms and that's more than enough.

You know, I don't have a living memory of a time before Nancy Johnson was in Congress.
