Beware the bloated, lying, windbag.

More than 30 men who have returned from Iraq are running for office in the '06 mid-term elections. All of them are running as Democrats, except one. So, wouldn't you know that the Bush/Conservative lie and defame machine is in full swing smearing these men already. Its been the subject of discussion and derision by conservative talkies on the radio for a bit and was the context for this amazing bit.

One of the men running as a Democrat, Paul Hackett, is a Marine Officer. He was running for the Senate seat in Ohio currently held my Sen. Mike Dewine (R) OHIO.. Recently Mr. Hackett bowed out in favor of a party wish to see Congressman Sherrod Brown (D) OHIO run against Dewine

Here's what Rush Limbaugh had to say about it yesterday.

“They want to bring out a bunch of guys in uniform to run, the party is thinking of that, but now they bring in Sherrod Brown, who is black, see there is a racial element to this too folks, of course the New York Times doesn't mention that."

Rep. Sherrod Brown, Democrat from Ohio
