Prepare yourself for the elegance that will be Election Year 2012. As usual, marriage looks to be a hot topic. Not just the usual variety of gay-marriage-vs-sanctity of, but whether or not one happens to be married. And if you think it's only one party using this device, think again. Take this snarky little mailer from Tampa, FL. It urges voters to steer away from GOP Tampa mayoral candidate Rose Ferlita because she "has a notoriously difficult temper" but--egads!--"is an unmarried woman with a suspect commitment to family values."
Who sent the mailer? A 527 with ties to a Democratic operative.
