Bad-mouthing and outright slander.

Presidential elections are coming up in my good ole' home country.  That is nice and as you can guess there is a great deal of very very naughty things written in newspapers, belonging to one side or the other, on TV, radio, internet and whatnot. Now one thing in particular caught my attention. Just before the election a "book" made in mockery of the current prime-minister comes out. Its complete nonsense and outright slander obviously made to appeal to the same category of people who called Barack Obama a monkey. That's not the annoying part of it. The annoying part of it, is that its from big publishing house, it had TV commercials, newspaper commercials...come on! Is that the best that can be done? Its insulting to for most of us, not because its insulting to the prime minister, but above all to our own intelligence. Seriously its elections after all, everyone is supposed to fight dirty, it would have been more cost-effective to buy some votes with the amount of money spent on this nonsense!

Mud slinging will forever be in politics of any kind...

@ True, and by its form we can see what demographic the opponents are aiming at. The stuff I described is well, aimed for the less intelligent, if we can put it that way.

Well you said it. It really all just comes down to money.

I'm guessing that this slander is more cost-effective and efficient than saying intelligent debate and conversation.

@Dwei

Printing a book, paying the newspapers, paying the TV just doesn't look more cost-effective. But when people can't think of anything proper to say, they stick to the stoooopid line.
