Low blow

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R) is getting down, dirty and despicable with his opponent Ammar Campa-Najjar in my 50th Congressional district. Enough in fact to earn four pinnochios from the Washington Post. As in baldface liar.

Ammar bears about as much responsibility for his grandfather's actions as Hunter and his father do for the My Lai massacre. As in none. A grandfather who he in fact had never even met.

This is identity politics as its worse, a desperate, vile, bigoted action from a very vile man. By the way, Ammar Campa-Najjar is Christian. And Campa is his Hispanic mother's family name. Unfortunately the nasty and false campaign will probably resonate with some of the numbskulls in my district.
