Smear Campaign Politics May 8, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Ireland & the Irish.

Smear Campaign Politics … with a difference ! Oh how I am heartened that the great folk of Ireland have not taken to the vicious backstabbing, gutter press publishing, slander tactics that we see in the US political sphere … instead they have taken to creatively defacing the election posters of the candidates in the upcoming election with their own brand of graffiti and providing us all with a bit of a smile as we drive past.

I must however complain about the unimaginative way in which these posters are being defaced … I mean how original is drawing a moustache on Bertie ? Or a fag hanging out of someone’s mouth ? One of the better ones I saw was a pair of Marx-like glasses drawn on the local Green Party candidate which totally upstaged the bollocks symbol drawn perilously close to the (pretty) lady Shinner candidate’s face.

But by far the best … and I don’t know why it alone provided me with a brief smile … was the speech bubble eminating from a prominent minister’s mouth on one of the posters in the middle of his own constituency. I don’t like the word itself but suffice to say that it starts with C, ends with T and has a U and an N in it (no, not coconut you daft c*nts, the other one) …. ooops !

Instead of Rock the Vote we should have deface the poster competition, that would get the young people interested.

Did you mean see you next tuesday?
