Simon Says: Go Negative!

SIMON SAYS: GO NEGATIVE!….Bill Simon is planning to start running radio ads tonight:

“The ad will say Californians are already facing a tripling of the car tax and now Arnold Schwarzenegger’s top economic adviser is suggesting a tripling of the property tax,” [spokesman K.B.] Forbes said. “We’re looking for a strong face-to-face debate on this issue.”

Attaboy, Bill, don’t attack Gray Davis or the Democrats, attack one of your fellow Republicans. And it goes without saying that you should attack him in the most incendiary and unfair way possible, thus making both of you look completely unfit to be governor.

I like it!
