One Thing I Won’t Stand For

I have already declared that while there is much about Hillary Clinton with which I disagree, should she manage to win the nomination I will support her. Nevertheless, there are some things I absolutely won’t stand for.

This is one of them.

Since 2004, I have spent a great amount of energy focusing on Terror Management Theory, and the politics of fear. Beyond character assassination, beyond false testimony, I consider scare tactics in politics to be the single lowest point a politician can reach.

This is what the other guys do, not what we do, and if we dip down to this low pedestal, we have little right to claim that we are better than they are. What is worse, if she employs ads like this in the General Election, she will be doing little more than putting John McCain right in his political wheelhouse.

Shorter: Don’t go there.
