The fact that guys like Atwater and Rove are actually effective is a pretty disillusioning comment on politics in general.
Not to me, it reflects the dynamics of the masses. Politics in a democracy is all about representation, ultimately the masses decide who are "good" politicians.
Maybe so, but it's nice to see lowball tactics backfire once in a while: Fallout over claim of ‘homosexual lobby’

Maybe Lamborn should have been more selective about who he allowed to participate in his campaign. Doesn't do to have squeamish people about that defect to the other side in disgust.

Of course, things like this only seem to happen in the primaries. If Lamborn were attacking Democrats instead of his fellow Republicans, the attack ad probably would have been seen as more acceptable.
