Don't Check The Mail. Turn Off The TV
We all know, as the Sacramento Bee points out, that as the election gets closer, races often get dirtier and dirtier. One exception here being the Dikeman/ Gallegos race that got pretty heated earlier on, or so it seemed to me.
This is the time when it's probably best to turn off the TV and radio if you can't handle the same ads over and over again. I swear if I hear one more Gallegos ad on the radio I'm going to scream.
Well, I take that back. I told myself that yesterday morning and, as soon as I turned on the truck radio, there was the Gallegos ad, yet again. I didn't scream.
So, let's see if any new sleaze enters any of the local campaigns in the next few days. Seems pretty mild today, at least so far. The only thing close being 4th district Supe candidate Richard Marks' attempt to place himself even further to the left by suggesting the other candidates publicly support Measure T.
Wow, that's out there, Richard. Not sleazy politics, just out there.
Here's a look at some hit campaigns down south of us as reported by the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat. Other than those recent slate mailers, I don't know that we've had anything like that up here this time around.
