Capitol Journal: Turn down the volume on negative political ads - latimes.com
There is humor in some of these TV ads the two Republican gubernatorial candidates have been running in an attempt to outflank each other on the right.
"These commercials have been awfully bad the last few weeks. They're silly."And they're basically not to be believed. Oh, there's a sprinkling of truth here and there, but not enough to warrant any serious thought. The ads are packed with distortions and outright lies, too many to go into here. The Times has chronicled the worst examples in stories.Everything these candidates say in their ads is deservedly tainted.And usually intellectually insulting.
