ELECTION: Adam Smith ad redifines reality

I’ve just watched the new Adam Smith campaign ad which touts him as a “fiscal hawk.” Does Smith have no regard whatsoever for the intelligence of the voters?

How can anyone who has voted for bailouts of $700 billion, a $787 billion stimulus package and a monstrosity of a health care system, the cost of which can only be regarded conceptually, seriously present himself as a fiscal hawk?

Smith is this election’s poster child for Abe Lincoln’s famous saying, “You can fool some of the people all of the time; you can fool all of the people some of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” Gig’s up, Adam!
