A bizarre interent ad has compared Democratic congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert-Busch to suspected nineteenth century axe murderer Lizzie Borden. The ad also claims Colbert-Busch supports “fewer regulations for abortion clinics that enable butchers like Kermit Gosnell to murder women and children.”

Wow …

Borden was tried and acquitted for the grisly hacking of her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1892. Gosnell is currently facing murder charges stemming from the brutal later term “abortions” he performed at his “women’s clinics” in Pennsylvania. Are either of them comparable to Colbert-Busch, who was arrested in 1988 on a contempt of court charge stemming from a divorce proceeding?

We don’t think so … but that’s why they call it the marketplace of ideas.

The 51-second spot – which is quite niftily-produced for a web-only advertisement – appears on the YouTube channel of a group calling itself Ghost Army Dispatches.

Take a look …

“Both of the candidates in South Carolina’s congressional race are crazy,” the ad concludes. “But only one of them hides it.”

The group claims its ad is paid for by the “first f*cking amendment.”

Colbert-Busch is running neck-and-neck with former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford in the race for the Palmetto State’s first district seat – which was vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott. The district is overwhelmingly “Republican,” although Sanford’s extensive personal baggage has put the race in play for Democrats looking to seize some early momentum in their bid to take back the U.S. House of Representatives.

Posted less than 24 hours before polls opened in the first district, the ad has drawn more than 11,000 views already.

If Sanford wins, it is his seat for the forseeable future.

You and Bob Inglis thought that too…didn’t you Dumb@$$????….
Sanford has irrevocable character flaws. He’s like John Jennerette before him. Jennerette admitted he has “Larceny in his blood.”
Sanford will never admit it…But Like Jesus knew Judas, his fate is sealed.
When you get away with it, see, Clinton, See Obama See Sanford, you think God, not the Devil, has blessed you.
But it will catch him…

You’ve never been good at predicting shit, have you?

15 other candidates and Sanford had the largest percentage of votes. You said Bostic would cream him in the runoff when it turned out the other way around. Perry lost. Romney lost. Elizabeth Warren is now a senator. Democrats held the Senate. How many other of your predictions have fallen flat on their faces?

And you seriously expect Sanford to get his ass kicked a la Spratt or Inglis?

I sure hope you don’t gamble because you would likely be in debt up to your eyeballs at this point.

Be honest: what you cannot resist, is hearing the truth about yourself.
You have to feel a little guilty going throyugh life as a liar and corrupt. And no one else will tell you who you are. It likely gives you some comfort knowing that i know what your are…

GrandTango May 7, 2013 at 11:40 am

When Liberals don’t like reality, they make up lies. (see Benghazi)
It makes you look STUPID to those of us who know you are making it up. The others hate me, and truth, anyway..so you don’t have to lie to impress them…
I trumpeted Perry’s entry because Texas is in great shape economically. Sadly, for America, Perry did not really want it, as badly as we needed a good leader.
But other than that: You’ve proven Extremely Ignorant…and your support of a Faliling Obama, who cheated to win, is evidence of your Stupidity…That’s not my fault…
But that’s why you get so P!$$#* at me. I tell you the Truth…You are not used to it, and you Cannot stand that…

Regardless of what happens in Dist1 women everywhere are just giddy waiting for the opportunity to vote for Hillary. Same as Obama, many voters simply wanted to see a first, i.e. a black prez. The first affect will occur again with Hillary and the Dems will sweep for another 8 years. I’m an unbiased independent also known as a voter without a candidate.
With that I say the changes that are about to occur in this country will render it a completely failed state by 2020 because the Republicans repeatedly bring candidates to the ballot that are without merit and also work to destroy grass roots movements that have the potential to replace it – the antiquated institution that it is.

Cheers!

You know, Hillary is probably the most ghost-less politician in the country. Ken Starr spent years and millions of taxpayer dollars on digging up every possible thing he could on the Clintons so he could send them to jail. Monica was the ONLY thing he found.
Personally, though, I am as sick of dynastic wannabes as Barbara Bush.

Looks like The State took the lead I gave them, and they are running with it. Headline in The State today:

1st District could hold key to 2014 for SC Democrats

Just like I’ve been telling them. If she wins, it means they think they have a chance. If she loses, Obama is OVER!!!!

Still not sure how Obama’s presidency, which already succeeded in its one and only reelection, hinges on a minor race in SC that won’t change the majority in the House or stop filibusters in the Senate regardless of the outcome. I would ask you to explain your grand reasoning to us, but I don’t have my bottle of Advil with me today.

Even if he does win, Sanfraud will be the lowest guy on the totem pole in the House. The lowest Republican, shunned by the national party, will not get many perks. People will know what a dickhead he is. The feds are here on election day to prepare charges against him or his team should he win fraudulently.

Glad the anti-depressants are working, T. On the other hand, you are more entertaining when you are PI$$ED OFF…..

You could also look at it this way : Either way you lose.

If she wins, you’ve got an Obama loving, liberal Democrat representing the 1st. If he wins you’ve got a personally flawed, “Liberal-Tarian” that you dislike representing the 1st.
To add insult to injury……incumbents almost never lose, so we’ll be stuck with the winner for the foreseeable future.

Cheerio!

You may be pretty ignorant about politics. If she wins, she’ll be a seat-warmer tiil 2014. And a Conservative will take the seat…It’s why I would rather she wins it.
She will be meaningless in Congress.
But a conservative could beat Sanford in a Primary too. And if she loses, it will be fun seeing the dems crap all over themselves, w/ fear of the Obama presidency being over…

Mark Sanford has done one of the biggest “NO NO” in politics. Lost trust! This race is close because the people of District 1 does not trust this man. He flat out lied to hide an affair that ultimately skyrocketed to national attention in a matter of days. While he can be forgiven, and he should, I think he cannot serve as an elected official effectively with that lack of trust hanging over his head.
