Tierney and his lying flyers

(Continued)

 

At some point the candidate was asked about a constitutional amendment banning abortion that is estimated to have only a 1 percent chance of passing Congress, never mind being ratified by the states. Though clearly he would vote against it, Tisei simply responded with “it is what it is,” which is what can be said about anything too farfetched to waste time discussing. This phrase is the focus of Flier 8. Pathetic, meaningless attack.

 

All these lying fliers have been sent to me by the Massachusetts State Democratic Party. Tierney clearly approves of them — he hasn’t stated otherwise, and his most commonly used word in the debate was “extremists.” He tried to make Tisei appear an extremist because Republicans of all ideological stripes are enthusiastically supporting him against the ultra-liberal Democrat Tierney. 

 

I can’t imagine who would support the likes of him even if they agreed on some issues. But some of us are targeted “potential” — near as I can tell from the fliers, the Democratic Party thinks that Independent women and senior citizens are dumb enough to believe anything they’re told by sleazy campaigners, then scared enough to vote for Tierney. Personally, I resent that a lot.
