This year, however, they are outdoing themselves, stooping to new lows and none are more noteworthy than a last minute ad that has come out against Cory Gardner. Gardner is the Republican Congressman from Colorado who is challenging sitting Senator Mark Udall for his seat and, if late breaking polls are accurate, it looks quite likely that Gardner will win.
Democrats always pull out the dirty tricks and dishonest ads when they feel threatened, but the particular ad they have now released is, in my opinion, likely to boost support for Gardner. Why do I say this? Because it is both stupid and unbelievable that they would think many voters would fall for it, excepting a few low information voters who will accept anything with a Democratic label.
The ad depicts a young woman talking to a young man and asking him if he was able to secure condoms. The young man looks at her incredibly and says, "They're all sold out".
He tells here that he has been to the drug store and other retailers and all are sold out. He then states that the reason is because Cory Gardner has banned birth control. Really, Democrats, you want voters to believe that Cory Gardner has banned birth control? How would he do that and with what legal authority? But then, of course, you know that answer and you are just crossing your fingers hoping that enough people who probably shouldn't be voting will hear it and be encouraged to vote.
The irony of it all is that Gardner has actually come out for over the counter sale of all approved contraceptives, certainly not an action by some who supposedly had the power and authority to unilaterally change state and federal law. So Democrats, is that your best shot? Go ahead make our day and try some more. The more you lie the more ridiculous you look and everyone is catching on quick.
It looks more and more like next Tuesday will be a good day for America. If so, let's enjoy it but then get to work to make sure that all who are elected actually live up to their promises. That, my friends, is another issue for another day but at least there is some new hope for tomorrow.
