Prelude of Ads to Come

Having royally screwed themselves with a drawn out primary process, the Republican party is going to be facing an uphill battle against Obama. Whoever the candidate turns out to be, they’re going to have to overcome a (mildly) improving economy and a president who faces little party opposition.

That means one thing in American politics: negative campaigning. The attacks are going to start early, and they’re only going to get worse as time goes on. Since there’s a lot of money from big donors floating around, we can expect so see a lot of big budget attack ads.

I take this Santorum ad to be a taste of what’s coming:
