That’s a step above a mere hate-blogger right? From Catherine Crabill’s campaign website/blog (get your own link):
As we have all seen in these recent years anyone who stands for the core principles of a free nation are pilloried in the press. Just this past April we saw how Patriots who joined with the Tea Parties across the country were mocked and ridiculed. This is a part of Alinsky’s method: Rule #5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.” I have been a target of such character assassination as will any freedom loving American who dares to speak the truth. The only way to disarm this technique is to recognize it as such and stand against it or ignore it and support that candidate in spite of it!
I guess a character asssassin is just like an “attack ad”, they both tell the truth.
