From the "more news of the Ugly" department:

The current Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert recently suggested on Faux News Channel that Dem financier George Soros got his money from drug cartels. And now GOPAC, the Republican fund-raising Political Action Committee, has seized upon the fact Soros is a Hungarian Jewish immigrant. In a very, very ugly fashion.

“No other single person represents the symbol and the substance of globalism more than this Hungarian-born descendant of Shylock. He is the embodiment of the Merchant from Venice,”

Well, we've heard slander of all kinds coming from the mouths of standardbearers of the GOP this year. But these two incidents suggest that the GOP has only begun to fling mud. I think that the time has come to start breaking out the lawsuits. Stuff like this should not be allowed to stand, and those who make these kind of irresponsible comments should be held responsible for them.
