There’s a fine line between mudslinging and political criticism, but the difference is clear. Political criticism is when an accusation is thrown with evidence to back it up; mudslinging is when accusation is thrown with nothing behind to support its truth. One seeks to illuminate the truth; one seeks to darken it.
I won’t even attempt to address the spectrum of mudslinging in the election, because most of it is untestable. There is, however, one direct accusation that is rather easy to test, but no one has brought the suggestion to the table yet. I’m talking about the witch-hunt surrounding Christine O’Donnell.
Christine O’Donnell claims that she’s not a witch, despite her past claims that she did practice Wiccan.
So…how do you tell if she’s a witch?
Logically if she weighs the same as a duck, she’s made of wood…and therefore a witch!
What do you say, Christine? Are you ready to jump on the scale and settle this once and for all?
