Wow, this is lame. The DCCC is getting involved in Hawaii's special House election, except that the Republican candidate, Charles Djou, is about as menacing as a Care Bear. So their line of attack is . . . for signing a pledge not to raise taxes. Djou signed the Americans for Tax Reforms Taxpayer Protection Pledge, stating that he opposes any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar-for-dollar by further reducing tax rates.
The DCCC contends Djou is "protecting tax breaks for companies that send jobs overseas." And every other company, and every other individual. You might as well argue he is protecting tax breaks for serial killers, too. (Somewhere at the DCCC, some underling is reading the above sentence and jumping up: "Boss, I just read this great idea!")
By the way, that's it. That's all the DCCC puts in the ad, and their extraordinarily sparse "Djou Facts" site. Djou's been a Honolulu city councilman, and you figure at some point he might have made an unpopular vote, but if that's the case, Washington Democrats can't find any.

Hawaii Just Djou It!
The DCC ads have been horrid. Somehow they managed to get them on immediately following Djou’s ads. Typical nasty, negative DNC-type ad, lying about as much as possible in a 30-second spot.
Soon they’ll be running ads like this one:
Fellow travelers in the sales departments of the tv/radio stations.
Absolutely. Disgusting. It was on KHON too, which I’ve found to seem relatively unbiased in their reporting. I really can’t guess who Joe Moore voted for.
Heard Djou on Hugh Hewitt’s show yesterday. Sounds like he’s a good guy — plus he went to USC law school. Maybe some of his fellow Trojans here in the States can help him “Fight on!” :) :)
