Malice?


Sorry. I just can’t help myself. I have a twisted sense of humor sometimes. And, as much as the onslaught of negative political ads has disgusted me over the last 10 years – I just get a real kick out of the ads that really nail some incumbent politicians.

Yes, I promised myself that I would frequently reread the dictionary definition of the word “malice”. I do need a reality check from time to time to make sure that I can honestly say that I have not made malicious remarks in my little essays or quick jabs at whomever or whatever has caught my attention.

Malice – a desire to inflict injury, harm, or suffering on another, either because of a hostile impulse or out of deep-seated meanness: the malice and spite of a lifelong enemy.

Naaaaa – not yet. I admit that I deploy sarcasm as a cheap shot. And, I tease. But, as the scorpion said to the frog – it is my nature. I do not desire to inflict injury, harm, or suffering on another human being. I am a conflicted pacifist at heart. I rarely have hostile impulses and I am not a mean person. I do sometimes enjoy seeing bad guys get their comeuppances.

And, now to my point – here are links to three stinging political ads that I came across in my Required Reading.

Enjoy! I did.

These ads were found at Daily Kos.

Look here,
