Sherrod Brown’s Attack Ad Hypocrisy & David Brock’s Dog Collar | RedState


“Does a guy who wears dog collars in pictures with Barney Frank really want to make a political issue of other men’s . . .”

In Ohio?s Senate race, incumbent nut case Sherrod Brown recently complained on his website about all the outside groups running ads against him. And why not? Brown?s average polling lead on my friend Josh Mandel is roughly within the margin of error less than 75 days out, with RealClearPolitics calling the race a toss-up in a key battleground state for the presidential candidates. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are virtually tied in Ohio, too. Blaming conservatives for their own dismal records is the strategy du cycle for Democrats.

But is making the Ohio Senate election about outside groups what Sherrod Brown really wants to do?

Josh Mandel should be happy to engage Senator Brown, especially in an election cycle during which a ?journalist? accused Mitt Romney of the ?n**gerization? of Barack Obama?s campaign, or a super PAC run by a former White House staffer accused Mitt Romney of giving a blue collar worker?s wife terminal cancer. Democrats are willing to win no matter the cost as the tide of American politics turns against them, and Ohio is a great place to see it in action.

Josh Mandel has been the subject of vicious attacks that cross the line of what?s appropriate in American politics, and the mastermind behind them ? Media Matters founder David Brock ? is largely to blame for how emboldened the rest of the left has become.

Liberal super PAC American Bridge for the 21st Century, founded by David Brock (who still acts as its treasurer), began smearing Josh Mandel in the Politico before Mandel even formally announced his run for U.S. Senate. His crime? He accepted a meager $1,000 donation from Rich Iott:

“Rich Iott, the Nazi reenactor who ran unsuccessfully for Congress, donated $1,000 to Josh Mandel?s Ohio Senate campaign, according to the Republican?s campaign finance filing provided to POLITICO by the Democratic group American Bridge.”

Remember, Politico is a David Brock ally, according to an expos? on Media Matters by The Daily Caller. So it’s no surprise they actually explicitly get credit from the Politico for bringing the story up. You can also see the story linked on American Bridge?s website in a directory called ?A.B. in the News.? That?s how David Brock brags to donors like George Soros about the vile work they do to tear down opponents personally.

What?s so offensive about attacking Mandel for taking a donation from Iott? Josh is Jewish, and that?s what makes it so offensive. Of course, that doesn?t matter to David Brock?s gang, who openly declared in their Media Matters application to the IRS for tax exemption that they were waging a war on religion. It should also be no surprise that Brock?s American Bridge revived its Nazi-themed attacks on Mandel in a Christmas-themed attack on 12 Republicans last December. You know, because those holly-jolly Nazis sure were funny, weren?t they?
