****There were more firecrackers as Jackson was accused of having been a war criminal during the war of 1812 because he allegedly committed atrocities against his own men. ****
There is on the wall, at Gilcrease Institute and Museum in Tulsa, OK an anti-Jackson poster detailing how Jackson ordered the execution of several Militia Men because they would not follow orders. It seams that these militia men had just been discharged and no longer considered themselves under military orders.
***and probably used his shirt sleeve as a napkin! ***
HEY WATCH IT MAN! Now he is getting personal!
Did we forget to mention that every Republican since Reagan is a National Socialist?
“Adams backers called Jefferson a howling atheist,
LOL, that is good. We should have used that against Obama, called him a howling communist!
“Samuel Tildon was called a syphilitic drunk during the election of 1876.”
I like this one too. It reminds me of Glenn Reynolds saying he’d vote for a syphilitic camel over Obama.
This is a good piece. I think we tend to think people in the olden days were all prim & proper, but they were bigger mudslingers than ever we are today.
My fave negative political ad was one Christie Todd Whitman ran against Jim Florio right at the end of their race. It talked about Florio, why he was bad, etc. but it had a rather hysterical tone, then...right at the very end it had a picture of Florio’s face morph into that of the Joker from Batman.
It was brutal and even silly, but I think it worked.
I hope the two altar boys of Romney & Ryan have an ace or two like that up their sleeves, just for the very end. A final “wake up” slap to the undecideds!
