Real political dog whistling.


Don’t vote for the dog killer is the short sharp message of this extraordinary ad being run by the Democrat Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn who is struggling to hold on to his job from a challenge by the Republican Bill Brady.

Apparently Mr Brady, who pollsters say is leading in the governorship race, once did sponsor a  bill authorising euthanasia for stray dogs but withdrew it after  complaint from the US Humane Society.
Perhaps the Speaker in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, could do with a little help from the Humane Society too because smearing her is the theme not only of Republican advertising but increasingly of members of her own Democratic Party Congressional candidates as well.

Now that, I assure is a Democrat ad!
