New Kline ad called a ‘jaw dropper’

October 24, 2006

— In a move Democrat Paul Morrison calls "desperate and sleazy," Republican Phill Kline's latest television ad in the attorney general's race highlights unproven, 15-year-old sexual harassment allegations against Morrison.

The ad has an actor reading statements attributed to Morrison by a former employee who sued him twice in federal court. Kline, who is seeking a second term, has made her allegations a campaign issue even though both cases were dismissed and Morrison, the Johnson County district attorney, paid no monetary damages to the woman.

Kline began broadcasting the 30-second spot across the state this weekend, less than a week after holding a news conference to publicize the cases.

Kline spokeswoman Sherriene Jones defended the ad Monday as raising an issue voters need to consider before the Nov. 7 election. However, Morrison said, "Phill Kline should be ashamed of himself."

'That's a jaw-dropper'

The attorney general's race already was contentious when Kline began attacking Morrison over the former employee's allegations. The ad is unusual for having an actor portray an opposing candidate, without telling viewers they're hearing a dramatization. The actor does not appear on screen but reads the statements attributed to Morrison in a voice-over.

"As someone who's seen a lot of Kansas political ads, that's a jaw-dropper," said Bob Beatty, a Washburn University political scientist. "That's the kind of ad where the people sitting around planning the ad have to pause and say, 'Are we going to run this?'"

During a visit to Lawrence, attorney general candidate Paul Morrison, right, visited with, from left, Kansas University graduate students Russell Miller, Leavenworth, and Elaine Elliott, Nortonville, and KU alumnus Mike Peterson. The group was outside Wescoe Hall on Monday.

The ad also has an unusual ending: "To be continued" appears on screen.

Jones would not comment on whether that meant Kline planned future ads on the same topic.

Suing Morrison was Kelly Summerlin, who worked as the victims-witnesses coordinator in the district attorney's office. She filed the first suit in March 1991, a month after Morrison fired her, and the second one in May 1992. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission declined to pursue the case.

Morrison has said repeatedly that he fired Summerlin because he wasn't pleased with her on-the-job performance. On Monday, his staff issued a statement saying three employees left his office because of conflicts with her.

Ex-employee's charges

But Summerlin's version of events was far different. In answering questions for attorneys in May 1991, she recalled an after-hours office party in a bar in November 1990. She said Morrison made a drunken sexual advance at her, which she rebuffed.

Kline's ad has Morrison saying: "Don't get me wrong. I love my wife and kids, but I'm very attracted to you. What are we going to do about that?" She also claimed he described himself as a "manly man."

As for voters, Jones said, "They need to be aware of this behavior and consider that when they're voting for the next attorney general."

Morrison acknowledged in a sworn statement in January 1992 only that he had told Summerlin she looked attractive. He wrote that he realized she took the comment the wrong way and he apologized the next day for the comment and "any misinterpretation she may have made."

"Phill Kline's latest attack is desperate and sleazy," Morrison said Monday, speaking for himself and his wife. "We don't know when Phill Kline abandoned any pretense of a moral compass, but the pursuit of power appears to have corrupted Phill Kline in a deeply disturbing way."

The first case went to trial in July 1992, and a judge dismissed it after four days of testimony, before hearing Morrison's evidence.

The second case also accused Morrison of harassment, as well as retaliation and spreading false information about Summerlin.

Dismissal sought

Morrison sought to have the second case dismissed before it went to trial, but a judge ruled against him. The ad says the judge concluded, "There was sufficient evidence to continue."

The judge wrote in his August 1992 order: "Questions of fact exist such that a reasonable person could find in favor of either party."

But six months later, the parties agreed to dismiss the case. Their two-paragraph agreement says only that each party would cover its own legal costs.

Kline and his staff have described it as a settlement, but attorneys for Summerlin told The Wichita Eagle last week that they don't recall it as a settlement.

Kline's ad doesn't mention the ultimate outcome of either case, nor when they were filed, or the fact that Morrison didn't pay any damages.

Good points, logicsound. If Summerlin knew she was going after Morrison, a public figure, with little more than actual malice... it would make sense for her to wrangle some sort of guarantee out of the mess she created. The links below might shed some light on things:

"So now I learn that part of the Morrison "settlement" was agreement that he not counter sue the lady. Thats great, Mr Big County DA with deep pockets and lots of "friends" threatens the little lady."


What is your point Sengal? Since we're all making assumptions about what happened here... the woman probably realized she wasn't going to get anywhere and might risk exposing herself and so she agreed to drop the suit, but she wanted to assure herself that Morrison wouldn't sue her right back for character defamation. I don't quite see how the agreement not to countersue (if it even happened) would point towards any guilt on the part of Morrison. Can you clarify?

What Iraqi government? Some who post on this site seemingly ignore that there is no functioning government in Iraq. The country is spiraling toward civil war, and the "government" of al-Malkali can't stick their noses out of the green zone without being shot.

During the recent phone call the Iraqi "prime minister" made to Shrub, al-Malkali begged Shrub to guarantee his and his family's safety by having them brought to the U.S. - what no one asked was when this rescue was to occur. Figure it out.

Troops on the ground know the end is in sight; when the Shiite forces of al-Sadr begin attacking U.S. troops in strength, it will be all over.

Thanks, Shrub. You and Cheney and Halliburton and Kellog & Scott did a fine job trying to insure that American drivers always have access to $2.00 a gallon gas.

senegal, could you provide some proof of what you said? It's a given, some lawyer will take any case for any reason. Fact is case was based on incident at bar, he said, she said. The case was thrown out twice. 15 years ago! Is Kline so desperate to get re-elected that he tries to make an issue of a non-issue? Seems like republican are seeing hand writing on wall.

BigDog,

I'm guessing your omission of a link to substantiate your information was an "accident." I'm also guessing that your omission of further information regarding sexual harassment from the EEOC was also a (convenient) accident.

Here's the link, for anyone who wants to read more, and actually put it into context this time:

http://www.eeoc.gov/types/sexual_harassment.html

The following paragraphs are of particular interest:


"It is helpful for the victim to inform the harasser directly that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. The victim should use any employer complant mechanism or grievance system available.

"When investigating allegations of sexual harassment, EEOC looks at the whole record: the circumstances, such as the nature of the sexual advances, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred. A determination on the allegations is made from the facts on a case-by-case basis.

"Prevention is the best tool to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. They should clearly communicate to employees that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. They can do so by providing sexual harassment training to their employees and by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains."

I've attended a couple of sexual harassment workshops in my time. One thing that was noted in both instances is that a pattern has to be established. If Summerlin had actually told Morrison face-to-face that his comments were not appreciated, and then he continued... there would be a real problem. Based on the information in the article, and in the depositions, Morrison complimented her, and then apologized the next day.

Funny that theocrats are howling over Morrison's behavior, but when one of their own is caught in a similar quandry, the wronged woman is "just out for a sack of money":

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1013043mackris1.html

Sherriene Jones' comment-- "They need to be aware of this behavior and consider that when they're voting for the next attorney general"--sounds eerily familiar:

"The people of Kansas have a right to know," she said. "They have a right to make an informed decision on August 6, and cannot do that when Kline refuses to divulge important information that only he can release."

How 'bout it, Phill? If Morrison shows his... will you show yours?

Of course the Libs think this is ok because its what Bill did several times. It really doesnt matter who gets the AG job because in Kansas the AG doesnt do squat. 99% of the criminal prosecutions are done by the County Attorneys and DA's. So I really dont care who wins I just get a laugh remembering Vern Miller.

When right-wing republicans get desperate, their devious, dishonest true colors show. First it is Kline's lesson in acting 101. Now it is Talent misattributing quotes to the KC Star, eliciting a demand from the KC Star to pull the ads (the quotes were made by McCaskill opponents in stories in the Star, but the talent campaign attributed them to the Star in the ad).

Pathetic. I smell right-wing losers going down in flames. Smells like buring chicken-hawk feathers.

"Mr. Booster, are you avoiding my argument with (typical) ad homenim tactics?"

Have forgotten all your tactics of yesterday? You've again shown that you are a hypocrite with little to no credibility.

"Almost on cue, you missed my clinton-lewinsky point entirely. Maybe someone can explain it to him? I'm growing tired of this."

Seems a little derogatory and demeaning, something I thought you were all about being against (unless you're not...can't seem to make up your mind, can you?).

I got the point-partisans aren't objective. Hey, thanks for that bit of insight! I believe that's what "partisan" means.

Here's the post I responded to:

"The Morrison (and Clinton, Kennedy, Berger, etc.) apologists on this board would be singing a different tune were the roles reversed in this case. No question."

Yes. VERY instructive. My point was only that you guys do it too. See? My other point was only that Kline is an idiot, and does not deserve re-election. His latest ad, with the fake Morrison VO, is deceptive.

As for addressing the argument, you've danced around it all day. I'll let you have the last word, as you hide behind your screen name (not to the public - that's understandable - but refusing to come clean about who you are to me by e-mail, well, that's just cowardly), since nothing anyone says can meet your standards of "credibility".

Count me as one conservative who is not voting for Kline. When Clinton lied on camera about Monica, I yelled "He's too slimy to lead our country". Now, I'm saying the same thing about Kline. If we conservatives are going to take the moral high road, we need to be more willing to point the finger at "us" when appropriate. Kline is a political conservative, but not a man of honesty and character. I am not voting for anyone who is clearly that dishonest.

"By the way, the Bush Administration isn't "staying the course" anymore on Iraq. They are considering / accepting "benchmarks" for withdrawal."-Holygrailale

I see you're interpreting this "staying the course" in a way to suit your thinking. My understanding of what we're saying to the Iraqi government is: "Start carrying your own weight or we will consider pulling out of here". There is a difference beyond just semantics.

Obviously the supposition is when/if they DO start carrying their own weight, we're out of there anyway.

Shelby 7 years, 5 months ago

my point is that it's the same old story here....those who are unwaveringly supportive of the left (and, of course, the right) conveniently just can't seem to locate their principles when confronted with a similar situation that implicates a leftist (or rightwinger). Remember clinton-lewinsky? Do you think the respective political responses would have been identical with just party names switched, or not? This was my point. No objective observations are made by those who are biased, usually.

I never said this wasn't replicated by right-wingers. In fact, I e-nodded at your tangy (and accusatory) response to my observation. We all know Kline is being a complete moron by doing this. However, this type of ad is NOTHING NEW. EVERYONE has been doing this opportunism-in-the-form-of-campaigning forever. It would be hard to convince me, or anyone in their right mind, that someone like Paul Morrison would consider himself "above" such tactics. How can you accuse Kline of playing unfairly and at the same time keep a straight face? (i'm only assuming you're keeping a straight face when typing this stuff)

Having been a county attorney under Vern Miller, Kline has a lot to learn when it comes to doing "Jaw Dropping" things. I belive Vern jumped out of a trunk once to make a bust. And in my county he gave out "Special Agent" badges to some of his friends and we had a great time with those when they flashed them at the highway patrol a time or two when they were drunk driving. So lets have a little perspective please.

Morrison was in position of power. The employee was not. Morrison was drinking. ( wonder if he drove home). Girl was offended. Person if position of power prevails. Female employee fired and can get no restitution. Now I know why Morrison ran as a democrat. If he had been a republican he would be tarred and feathered at this point by the libs. But since he switched its the female's fault ( she must be a liar) and Kline is bad for bringing it up

Warning: This isn't about Kline and Morrison.

Several posters have suggested that we're in the Iraq fracas because the president wanted to wrap up his father's unfinished business.

I don't think that's so. The presidents Bush don't even seem to get on particularly well; it doesn't seem that GHWB particularly approves of much of what GWB has done. I think if GHWB had wanted to go after Hussein, he would have done so at the end of Gulf War I.

Perhaps, though, GWB is acting at his mother's behest.

And do you know what context this was said under? I am sure that the two times Morrison had to defend himself over this allegation, that this context was covered. Morrison was exonerated BY THE LAW. Which, in effect, means that what Morrison said was NOT sexual harrassment. Were you there when Morrison defended himself? No, you weren't.

Facts About Sexual Harassment Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.

oldgoof - you are correct that the AG doesn't pass laws but they play a heavy role at the Capitol in pushing issues that are key to them. All AG's advocate for the legislation that they want.

1) Penalties have been increased for sex offenders, drunk drivers, drug drealers, etc, over the last 3 sessions.

2) The AG along with Rocky Nichols (former Democratic House Member) pushed legislation this last session that creates a new division in the AG's office that reviews abuse, neglect and exploitation cases. This legislation he pushed is response to the Kaufman House case. Over the last several sessions he has pushed legislation to protect seniors and those with disabilities.

3) He did help push for Jessica's law. No he didn't pass it but all politicians take credit if they played any part ..... ie. Governor claiming education legislation. -

I thought Kline was more creative than this! I am wrong! Kline has neither the creativity or credibility when fighting the the criminal low-lives that kill & murder innocent people & who have taken away Kansas Streets with their STINKEN METH LABS! Sadly, but truthfully those who voted Kline in are wrong as well. Kline's policies have driven Kansas BACKWARDS because of what kind of prosecution: ABORTION prosecution! Kline wants a fight, BRING IT ON KLINE! We the voters will bring you down at the ballot box, END OF LINE KLINE!

The only thing "jaw-dropping" about this ad is that people's jaws are dropping in response.

After all, it is a Republican we are talking about, and it is Republicans who attack their opponents' private lives, families, and very human foibles. It is Republicans who can be counted on to play the race card, the xenophobia card, the greed card, and the paranoia card.

It is the Republicans who look to Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and similar racists and hypocrites to sell their agenda.

In comparison to such vermin Phill Swine is actually rather tame. But it still will be more than sweet to see him defeated.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is not shy and chose not to pursue due to lack of substance. AG Phil Kline should resign immediately for practice unbecoming of an Attorney General.

1) Increasing penalties? The Legislature and Governor do that. Not the AG. And it has been discussed here that the cumulative effect of several severe penalty increases enacted in the early 1990's created the spiraling-out-of-control increases in prison populations that created the need for sentencing tweaking with the passage of SB 323. Virtually all politicians are "tough on crime."

After seeing Klines attacks, others should now know why honest politicians tread lightly in making any adjustment to sentencing statutes.

2)Protecting those that can't protect themselves. This is just code-speak for the abortion issue. Yes, we all accept that Kline has gone to inordinate extremes in support of his position. But some of us see trolling in medical records without evidence of a crime as being George Orwell, not Joe Friday.

If Kline would come out and oppose currently accepted medical fertility practices (including IVF) I could intellectually accept (even though I would still disagree) with his pro-life political panderings.

3)Keeping the children safe. If this is about Jessica's law, again the AG does not pass laws. Legislators and the Governor were falling over each other this year to enact this. Any assertion that Klines support was pivotal or significant (which I have seen in Klines ads) in this soft-ball of a piece of legislation is totally hot air.

4)Consumer Protection. Give me a break. Klines own numbers show a precipitous decline in actions pursued in this division. Why do you think the state Chamber of Commerce is endorsing an AG candidate for the first time in record. It is not because of the abortion issue.

I am not sure the head of the consumer protection department, who in buying his own house, did not obtain inspections and thus had to file litigation against the seller.....is the kind of person who is competent to render consumer protection advice.

The ad is on Kline's website. Very deceptive -- but also poorly done and, in the final analysis, ineffective. He doesn't have the TV money at this late stage to air a series of ads that will hurt Morrison badly enough to swing the outcome.

"To me, having an actor's voice reenact statements ALLEGEDLY attributed to Morrison without informing viewers that these were alleged statements and that the entire thing is a dramatization...that is not truthful."

Ummm, maybe they can tell that the guy in the ad is not really Morrison. I'm just guessing, of course, because I have not seen the ad.

This is another reason to subscribe to satellite and not watch the networks. You save yourself from having to watch local political ads.

Not truthful?

The ad is unusual for having an actor portray an opposing candidate, without telling viewers they're hearing a dramatization. The actor does not appear on screen but reads the statements attributed to Morrison in a voice-over.

I don't know how people can say the ad is not factual. Morrison is supposed to be an attorney. He should no as well as anyone that has even been to basic sexual harassment training, telling a woman that works for you she looks attractive to you is sexual harrassment. And in all the articles I've read he's admitted he said that to the woman.

So how is this ad not truthful?

Godot 7 years, 5 months ago

"Morrison acknowledged in a sworn statement in January 1992 only that he had told Summerlin she looked attractive. He wrote that he realized she took the comment the wrong way and he apologized the next day for the comment and "any misinterpretation she may have made."

The sign of a true, blue bully, a champion manipulator. Behave badly, then blame your victim. for "misinterpreting" your boorish behavior.

For those who do not like or approve of mud-slinging campaigns, please vote that way (i.e. do not vote for any politicians using that tactic).

Wait; that would mean we can't vote for anyone. Because the sad truth (or funny truth; the above two posts on national party conventions shows the lighter side) is that all candidates do it to some degree. Why is that?

Because, I surmise, because the voters like it or at least aren't too turned off by it to "punish" those who do it by withdrawing support.

The tactic of attack attack attack must be working - or no one would do it. We're addicted to watching others being ugly; look at the TV reality shows, the sales of scandal magazines, the gossip and hatefulness on forums such as this.

As much as we/I deplore the use of attack ads, they're more and more common. For a reason. It's what the public responds to best. It's what the majority want to see.

The days of civil debate and/or reasoned disagreement are over. Until/unless we start electing and listening to the folks who do not "play" the game.

Patriotman parrots:

"During his first term Attorney General Phill Kline has achieved significant achievements in the following areas:

"Fighting Crime and Toughening Penalties"

I can see "fighting crime"... but what penalties have been toughened, and how?

"Protecting those who can not protect themselves"

Are you referring to the elderly here? What has Phill Kline done, specifically, to protect the elderly, the physically-challenged, those with mental disorders?

"Keeping the Children of Kansas Safe"

Safe from who? From what? Good parents do this every day.

"Standing up for Kansas Consumers from those who would cheat"

Nothing terribly new here. Kline just continued the good system left behind by Carla Stovall. But why put someone with little or no background in consumer issues, in charge of the consumer protection division?

Interesting.

I believe Morrison.

When someone gets fired it is almost always for a good reason. Just a personal estimate but I'd say 99.9 percent of those fired were fired because they lied on their resume or lied to their supervisors.

The woman in question probably brought up the law suit because out of denial. I've read where liars have no shame and a streak of cowardice. Anonymous complaints and such are one of many tactics that are employed by lying cowards. Not saying the woman in question is such, just my observation.

overall Kline doesn't know for sure.

Is it mudslinging if you tell the truth? kline will lose this election and he will go down using whatever he thinks he can to get elected He is an unethical jerk to the point where his own people leaked stuff against him DA's in Wichita spoke out against him. He is a loser who got into politics and is too stupid to be able to stay in. Maybe cheney will hire him to clean his guns and spout rhetoric. As for bush he got us involved in a war through lies and deceit and it has come back to bite him on the ass. He will find out what a lot of americans know this was a war we should not have started and yes it was fulfilling daddy's vision and it has not worked nor will it meanwhile people not just americans are dying to stabilize a country we said threatened us and they did not OBL would be proud We did for him what they would've done They hated Saddam worse than us and we got rid of him and opened a door Who can blame them for walking thru

It burns me that some people might actually look at an ad like this and decide that "Where there's smoke there's fire," and so vote for Kline.

I think my response would be, "Well, if Kline will stoop this low, he'll stoop as low as he has to and take every shot he can. Knowing that, and knowing that he's now reduced to fifteen-year-old unproven allegations, it makes me think that Morrison must actually be reasonably clean, because if there was anything of actual substance, or anything more recent, you can be sure Kline would have taken that shot."

Saddam Hussein a bad guy??? No question.

Ironically, Usama Bin Laden also hated the guy.

=======================================

He's a bad guy but I can't help but feel sorry for the guy.

Hate him for what he's really done, not disingenuously for something he hasn't done.

=======================================

Was he a bad guy because he had three groups ( Sunnis / Shia / Kurds ) fighting amongst each other that he had to keep a lid on (What we are dealing with now, for instance)???

Perhaps.

How would Bush have handled such internal politics had he been in Saddam's place???

Would he have used the military to kill Iraqis........

Oh, wait, that's what Bush is doing now.

=======================================

Were the United Nations sanctions working during the Nineties???

In hindsight, it appears that they were. Not as sexy as a CNN filmed air attack but effective.

=======================================

Was support of Saddam Hussein necessary in the Eighties???

No, if we had established a relationship with the democratically elected government of Iran in the Fifties, we wouldn't have had to support the Shah and then deal with the Islamic rebellion of the Seventies by declaring war on Iran using Iraq as a proxy.

American policy in the Middle East has been a series of screwups for half a century. This Administration is only the latest and worst.

He fought Iran for us. Good guy / bad guy, we turned on one of our allies and the Middle East doesn't forget stuff like that (or think highly of us) when we do stuff like that.

How America can put up with the rightwing lies proves the complicity of the "rightwing corporate media as Bush house organ" in all of this...

One thing that should be remembered about the resolution to invade Iraq: The Bush crime family used it to justify all the repressive and illegal acts it has since initiated, claiming falsely that it gave them the right to imprison Americans without bringing charges (Jose Padilla), torture Americans being detained while never having to prove their guilt in a court of law (Jose Padilla), eavesdrop and wiretap all Americans without warrants, search the homes of Americans without warrants, and do away with habeus corpus, that is, the right for Americans to challenge their detention in court. All of these illegal acts will form the basis of impeachment once the Democrats get in power.

Additionally, the Bush crime family fought against the 9-11 commission (even though Bush later recanted and appointed his own set of commissioners, he would not testify under oath to HIS commission, allow a transcript of his comments to HIS commission, and would only give testimony if Dick Cheney were in the room with him), a commission that the FAA, the Defense department, and Condelezza Rice have all admitted they lied to - where's Ken Starr when you need him????

And we also know, as holygraile pointed out, the Bush rationale for war was a lie too. These lies - fixing the evidence around the policy - will also help to chimpeach Bush. I look forward to the hearings.

So many are against this war, and the numbers have only grown over the last 3.5 years. Those of us against it to begin with should feel good that we were out in front of the crowd on this one. But now the crowd is with us! YEAH!

Most, if not all, of the reasons listed there have been debunked.

"Kill my Daddy" was paragraph 9.

=======================================

By the way, the Bush Administration isn't "staying the course" anymore on Iraq. They are considering / accepting "benchmarks" for withdrawal.

I just find it revolting that Kline's in office right now, and that he's our state's chief law enforcement attorney ... where evidence matters!

My first recall of the depths to which Kline would go is his campaign against Dennis Moore several years back. Kline reviewed positions Moore had taken as a defense attorney and twisted them to pretend that the legal positions were Moore's personal view. I guess once Kline got a taste for scumbag politics, he couldn't let it go. And, I have to echo the sentiment from other comments: Phill Kline would pretend he's speaking from the moral high ground ... I think not.

It is unlikely that this ad is getting the negative press in the West that it is getting here, and Kline will probably carry it again.

How Christian of little Phill (as they used to call him in the House of Reps.) The TEACHER would not be pleased.

macon47... sorry but that bit from the churches pales in comparison to this attack from Phil. (One difference is that the church situation was TRUE) By the way, NO ONE blamed George Bush. The blame game is pretty much part of the Republican platform: 1. Blame Clinton 2. Blame Hollywood 3. Blame the press

It does not surprise me about this ad one bit. Kline is soooo desperate that he is resorting to tactics such as this. It is also sad that people like macon will actually still vote for this scumbag. Guess some people cannot think outside the box huh?

Republicans get away with murder in this country. Had any of the recent events, including those of Kline, been committed by a more liberal Independant or a Democrat the crucifix would have been up one day later.

"Sleasy leak???? When an elected official walks into a church, a public place, and preaches a sermon, a very public event, this constitutes a "sleazy leak"????? Let me get my dictionary, I think that this event qualifies as "public knowledge".

Hmmmm. . . what wonder Macon would have said had it been a liberal or democrat doing this? Much more colorful, I would imagine.

i voted early, and i didnt vote for phil, but did everyone forget about the sleazy leak on phil about the email on raising funds from chuches and their members? who do you think orchestrated that tidbit? we cant blame george bush for that one.

Words come easy, but true character reveals itself through a lifetime of actions. Phill may know how to give a good sermon, but his actions over these past four weeks show that he has absolutely no character.

Obviously, I am no phann of Phill, but I am shocked at the depths to whcih he has sunk and the speed with which he has gotten there.

If this deplorable act doesn't convince the voters what a disgusting, debauched, unprincipled, unethical, unfit, vicious, degraded individual that Phill Kline is, and prove his unsuitability to hold public office, then I do not know what it takes to wake up the slumbering idiots who voted for him the first time. Let's get this dolt out of this office and get a person who has some credentials, some respectability, and some qualifications for this important office and send Phill Kline to the scrap heap of has-been political hacks.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... .. Kline's chutzpah knows no bounds. .. And when the facts aren't on your side, turn to sexual inuendo. .. The ad by itself is a reason not to elect this person to any public office.
