Aschenbach on the US election

From the Washington Post, Sunday, October 29, 2006:

I do not believe in negative campaigning and have ignored the ugly name-calling by my opponent, who is a criminal, a cretin and a foul-smelling lush. But I have been dismayed in recent days as my opponent has repeatedly tried to divert public attention to such tawdry matters as my voting record. That is the kind of gutter politics I thought we had moved beyond.
