With 8 months before the election, Democrats are beginning to panic. And when Democrats panic, they run ugly, personal attacks.
First, Senator Mark Pryor attacked decorated army hero Tom Cotton's post 9/11 military service as "entitled
," causing outrage and protest not only in Arkansas, but even on the airwaves of MSNBC.
In Alaska Mark Begich's Super PAC and his friends at the DSCC attacked decorated Marine Dan Sullivan's post 9/11 service as well. As reported on United Liberty
"Sullivan moved to Washington in 2002, not long after the 9/11 attacks, to work in an advisory role for the National Security Council and the State Department from 2006 to 2009. During this time, he and his family lived in Bethesda, Maryland, but still maintained their residency in Alaska.
It’s worth noting that Sullivan has served in the U.S. Marine Corps since 1993 and has been recalled to active duty on three separate occasions, the most recent of which was in July 2013, when he was deployed to Afghanistan. He also spent 17 months in working in Africa working as a strategic advisor to Gen. John Abizaid.
If you’re going to knock a guy for being born and raised in a different state, something over which he had no control, and living in Maryland while serving the nation, why not also bring up the fact that he lived outside the country, too? Oh, wait. It doesn’t fit the wholly misleading narrative that Democrats are trying to create."
Or, as Justin Higgins fumed
"It’s despicable that national Democrats are so desperate to defend Obama supporter Mark Begich that they’re willing to whitewash a man’s career and record in order to score cheap political points. Democrats must really fear facing Dan Sullivan."
As if attacking our veterans wasn't bad enough, in Michigan, male Democratic operatives have all but accused Terri Lynn Land of supporting rape
. Land is of course the Republican woman currently winning the Michigan Senate race.
If that wasn't disgusting and arrogant enough, in Iowa, other male operatives at the Democratic Party dedicated a blatantly sexist song
(which happened to be about murder) to Republican Joni Ernst, complete with the lyrics, "I'll feed you aphrodisiac just to get you hot."
This is what Republicans across the country can expect from desperate Democrats and the DSCC.
Momentum is building for the GOP but we can't take anything for granted. Help us win the Senate and battle the nasty, dirty tactics from the Democrats.
