Leaps of Logic in a Nevada Primary

From FactCheck.Org.

In a race that The Hotline
calls “the ugliest primary no one is watching,” state Senate Minority
Leader Dina Titus and Jim Gibson, mayor of Henderson, NV, are again
trading barbs through television ads across the Silver State.

In her ad, Titus claims that Gibson
“was paid more than half a million dollars by Nevada Power to keep
utility rates high.” Gibson’s law firm was paid this sum for
consulting services, but there is no evidence he had any role in
determining rates.

Gibson attacks Titus for Nevada’s poor education system, blaming her
for all of the state’s woes on that front. His statistics are a little
off and it takes no small amount of creativity to hold one state
senator — especially one who’s in the minority — responsible for the
whole mess.

Guys, the phrase, “Go ugly, early.” means something entirely different. However, I don’t think this race is going to be as fun as the one for the US Senate seat with Edward “Fast Eddie” Hamilton.  There isn’t any information on him, so for all I know he may be a very nice guy. I will just say, my friends call me a lot of things, none of which I would use in a political campaign.
