Elizabeth Dole "Crossed the Line, Should Be Ashamed"It's official: the GOP is now the party of despicable fearmongering crazymakers. Following the examples of McCain/Palin, Michele Bachmann and Robin Hayes, Elizabeth Dole sheds all decency and wallows in slimy stench, claiming that her opponent Kay Hagan is literally a godless heathen.
Take note that Hagan is a Sunday school teacher and elder in the church that the Hagan family has attended for 100 years.
Even former Republican operatives Alex Castellanos and Ed Rollins were appalled, calling the ad "crossing the line" and "so despicable... Dole should be ashamed of herself".
Hagan has issued a formal statement demanding a retraction and plans to file charges in court.
She also put out this ad:
Elizabeth Dole is an embarrassment to the senatorial position she holds and to the state of North Carolina, where she is now trailing Hagan by almost five points. It's time the people of her state throw this shameless, do-nothing career politician out of office.
