I want to talk politics. First and foremost, I am by no means a political pundit, but I do consider myself observant. As a reporter, I believe that I notice things that others may sometimes overlook.
I recently received an email from candidate for the 11th Congressional District Cecil Bothwell's campaign. The email featured a side by side comparison of his primary challenger Hayden Rogers.
In my opinion, almost every point of distinction Mr. Bothwell attempted to give to separate himself from Mr. Rogers is a complete fabrication. I fully understand that from local to Presidential, a part of the election process is to “expose” the opponent. It doesn’t just apply in politics, but in all competitions, and while I can fully appreciate the strategy of identifying the weakness of a challenger, I believe it should be done truthfully, and with a little bit of dignity, aspects of the process Mr. Bothwell seems to ignore.
