It's the everything, stupid

It's the economy.  Unemployment.  Obamacare.  Big government.  Regulation.  Illegal immigration.  The wars.  Spending.  Debt.  Ignorance.  Arrogance.  Narcissism.   

There are any number of HUGE, SIGNIFICANT issues that this election cycle is, and should be, about.  Yet, what is the left stooping to?  Crass personal attacks on candidates.

I won't promote the photos by posting them here, but apparently, the best response the left can come up with to a day's worth of campaign talking points is to publish photos of Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry eating corn dogs.

Posting the photos wasn't enough, they had to get all trashy with the captions and headlines.  Including:
“GOP Candidates Gone Wild”
“Totally Butch”(accompanying a corn dog eating photo of Marcus Bachmann)
"Gov. Rick Perry deep throats corn dog at Iowa State Fair"
As many of the comments point out, a similar photo or caption of Barney Frank would be met with outrage.
Why the double standard?  Is this really what we have to look forward to for the next 14+ months?

I don't know why they should be any better than last year when they questioned whether or not Sarah Palin was the mother of her youngest child. That was reprehensible in my opinion.

If that's the best they can do, the GOP has won this race already.
