Direct Mail Chutzpah

As an observer of Virginia Beach politics, I'm used to hearing statements made that are outlandish. However, I received a direct mail piece today that is one of the biggest ones I've seen this year.

It's from the Democratic Party of Virginia, and on the 2nd Congressional District race. It attacks Scott Rigell for contributing money to Barack Obama's Presidential campaign, and having stated in a debate that he wouldn't repeal Obamacare. That's right: the Democrats went after Rigell for giving money to their own President's campaign and not wanting to revoke his health care initiative! Do they believe people are too stupid to read who sent it? (It appears on the mailing twice.)

With stuff like that, no wonder many people are so cynical about politics.
