Forty four years ago, it was just as bad

For those who think this year's ads are harsh, let me take you back to Lyndon B. Johnson's 1964 run. Johnson's direct mail and targeted campaign in 1948 changed US Senate politics. Then, in 1964, Johnson went one step farther than Eisenhower's simple cartoon ads on tv with some of the first and still strongest attack ads. Watch and learn, folks, things have been as bad as you think they are now.

  1. Do you know what happened in 1964, cracker? Democrats kicked your sorry white ass from coast to coast. Get ready, cracker, it is coming. And, I am gonna get my ass paid.
