Negative Campaigning

Negative campaigns have a (dare I say it?) negative effect on the public. And that includes me! Each candidate “proves” that the other is incompetent, not up to the job, and a danger to the country (or state, or city). It means that the voters end up (if we’re lucky) with the least bad of our choices. And what ever happened to the idea that after the elections we’re supposed to rally ‘round the winner, who then becomes the Prime Minister (or President) of all of us? Maybe I’m just naïve and simplistic. Maybe that’s what you have to be if you want to be a political cartoonist.
