Benefits of Mud

We are drawing closer and closer to the electoral season. The season so far has been a wild ride, and it is likely to get even wilder as we get towards the end. Even though I don't always appreciate the constant waves of ads, I'm glad that our system allows us to see the best and worst of the major candidates, and that we get some scrutiny of their past. People's past often, though not always, indicates what they'll do in the future. The disadvantage, of course, is the negative advertising that reveals the major candidate's worst sides, or tries to make up a worse side if none exists. I'm still prepared to accept that disadvantage, however, for the sake of learning the truth about the candidates.
