Wow, how offensive is this? A historical throwback to the attacks on John Kennedy for being Catholic, and ‘ruled by the Vatican’. Not to mention a blatant attack on people from the “Deep South” and Mississippi.
Via Daily Caller:
Mark Miloscia, a Republican running for state senate in Washington state, is fending off attacks on his Catholic faith.
Miloscia, a former Democratic state legislator running for senate as a Republican in Washington’s 30th District, converted to the GOP over social issues. His campaign is encountering some old-school opposition: An anti-Miloscia attack website believed to be run by a Democratic Party member supporting Democrat Shari Song posted a piece of propaganda portraying Miloscia as a Vatican stooge. The Daily Caller has also learned that copies of the image were placed beside Song’s campaign literature at a recent candidate forum.
“Republican Mark Miloscia comes from the Deep South…with plenty of baggage,” the image read. “‘Mississippi Mark’ has always worn his church on his sleeve. Rather than represent the people of Federal Way, he has best represented the people of The Vatican.”
