The most frightful time of year

No, I’m not talking about Halloween. This is something even scarier: Election season.

A witch! She's a witch! Burn her!

Permatan and a whiff of brimstone?

Screeching from the TV set, howling on the radio, skulking through our front yards. They’re everywhere, and they’re uglier and meaner and more menacing than ever. And this year, no party is guilt-free when it comes to negative ads, half-truths and outright lies: Not the Democrats, not the Tea Party and certainly not the Republicans.

What bothers me is that as distasteful as these political ads are, they work.The nastier the better.

And this one takes the cake. A rancid, putrid, poisonous cake. Eat it up!
