In some ways, it would be fun to be a leftist.
No, I’m not talking about living a life of idleness and letting others pay my bills, though I suppose that’s tempting to some people.

Instead, I’m talking about what it must be like to engage in reckless demagoguery and personal smears.

The pro-Obama Super-PAC that produced that ad relied on indirect connections and overlooked some very salient facts that completely disproved even the indirect connections.
But even though the ad was exposed as maliciously false, the folks who put it together probably laughed all the way to the bank.
