GOP: Cover ups, Lies, Distorting the Record

The GOP is using cover ups, lies and distortions to get your vote. Here is a round up of some of the stuff that is being said:

A man approached Republican Sen. George Allen and asked, "Why did you spit on your first wife?" Full story at NBC29. The question itself is one that has long been a rumor about Allen's relationship with his first wife. Allen is quoting certain excerpts of Webb's books. However, Allen's alleged spitting on his first wife, shows his lack of respect for women and his wife. By the way, when will Allen release his arrest records? November 8th?

According to Media Matters, apparently a group of companies decided to blacklist Air America and refused to advertise on the liberal radio network. Wow! Do these companies want people to stop shopping/using their companies? Look at the list and decide who you'd like to avoid.

When will Republican candidate for Senate for Tennessee, Bob Corker, release his financial statements? What is he hiding?

He said his remarks, which he conceded were part of a “botched joke,” had been distorted and called the criticism directed at him the work of “assorted right-wing nut jobs and right-wing talk show hosts.”

“I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed-suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq,” Mr. Kerry went on. “It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have.”

At a televised news conference today in Seattle, Mr. Kerry said he was “disgusted” by the Republican attacks, which he noted were coming at the end of a bloody month in Iraq. “Sadly, this is the best this administration can do,” he said....

Huffington Post: Comedy Central's The Daily Show with host Jon Stewart is in Ohio this week, anticipating the midterm elections. Monday was the first Ohio show, and Stewart explained that while "obviously we wanted to get some Ohio politicians...apparently, many of them are preparing to leave office...or, go to prison," a reference to scandal-ridden Ohio politics and elections of recent years.
