ELECTION: NEA resorts to ‘low brow’ metaphor

The NEA should be ashamed of itself for its distasteful ad in which they compare Dino Rossi to a dog with fleas. For an organization that is supposed to promote education, they must think Washington voters are too dumb to interpret the difference between candidates’ policies. So the NEA had to resort to an attack ad in the form of a low brow, ridiculous metaphor.

I won’t be voting for Dino Rossi because I disagree with most of his policy stances, not because I think he has fleas. I wish the NEA representatives responsible for this ad were up for election so that they can be voted out for wasting its members’ fees.
