Saw an Anti-Talent ad last night where a bunch of veterans (complete with wheelchairs) railed against Talen for voting ... however many times ... "against" veterans.

Taking a little side trip here, first of all, if somebody put up a bill that says "we're going to give all veterans $5 million apiece, and someone voted against it ... this would be tallied as voting "against" veterans.

So they never tell you what bills they're talking about or let you consider what might have been in those bills to warrant voting against them -- a vote against giving them something they are not currently getting, or voting to repeal a bad program that shouldn't have been passed in the first place, or maybe getting something that many are abusing, or even voting for something that might curtail that kind of abuse... it doesn't matter. It was "against" veterans if it means that even some veterans might not get what they would be getting if the bill passed.

And let's not even mention the fact that the Missouri VFW endorses Talent for Senate. (Ooops. Cat's out of the bag now.)

But back to "Change". At the end of the spot, they put the words "We Want Change" on the screen and show their faces.

Once again, the Democrats are running on "change". Just generic "change".

Give me the box that has the contents listed on the outside, please. The Democrat's box simply says "Something Else" on the outside.

Be careful what you ask for.
