As many of you are aware, Kay Hagan is currently fighting a tough battle against incumbent North Carolina Senator Elizabeth Dole. It’s still a close race, but Hagan has opened up a healthy lead against her Republican opponent, some polls suggesting a 49/42 split.
That’s the good news. The bad news is, Dole’s campaign has its back up against the wall so tightly that it’s lashing out in the most vitriolic way possible, a method which seems to have become increasingly popular among GOP candidates this cycle: attacking the Democratic candidate’s faith. Dole recently released an ad (now being referred to as “Godless”) attempting to portray Hagan as a heathen liberal by claiming that a leader of the Godless Americans PAC held a fundraiser in her honor. The ad asserts that Hagan “took godless money” and asks, “What did [she] promise in return?”
This is the sort of slanderous filth of which the esteemed Governor Palin would be proud (if she weren’t already too busy practicing witchcraft).
