So maybe two weeks ago I got a placard in the mail from the Renzi campaign (incumbent Republican) linking his Democratic challenger Simon to the Man Boy Love Association. The ad was clearly directed at my homophobia button, only I haven't got one. I don't remember getting any mailings from Simon: if I did, they weren't THAT entertaining. But just yesterday I received a placard from Renzi accusing Simon of a "smear campaign" and "gutter tactics". He's labelling her as a "radical" and "liberal" while he is coming across as a dickhead. It's as if he has a loaded gun, and can't figure out which end of it to point at his head.
