It’s an election year, so the political mailers are coming fast and furious. You know it’s bad when you can’t tell the difference between the Republican and Democrat scare mailers.
What’s a scare mailer?
The ones with manipulated photos, misleading attacks, charged language, and not a damn positive thing to say.
Here are five mailers I’ve received. Four from the Republican Party of Minnesota and one from the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor State Committee.
They all use the same tactics. I received another one today from the DFL that went cartoony over Tyler Kistner (bad timing since that race just got pushed back to a special election in February due to the death of one of the candidates).
These are all over-the-top, fear-inducing propaganda messages.
Don’t waste my time bashing the other side. Tell me what you’re for.
It’s kind of a little thing called better politics.
