Will Durst: Worst election campaign ever? http://kalw.org/post/will-durst-worst-election-campaign-ever <p></p><p class="p1">I'm worried about Mitt Romney. The guy just might be running the worst campaign ever. And yes, that includes the print ads for organic hemp underwear, not to mention McCain/Palin in '08, which currently holds the gold standard for lousy campaigns.&nbsp;</p><p class="p1">But we're talking bad at a whole new level here. Bad like a dumpster behind a fish market during a garbage strike bad. Bad like a $3 Avengers DVD bought off a cardboard table in Times Square with Russian subtitles bad. Bad like Todd Akin at a NARAL benefit bad.</p> Sat, 22 Sep 2012 00:24:03 +0000 Will Durst 17028 at http://kalw.org Will Durst: Worst election campaign ever?

Everyone keeps calling it a "bold choice." Yeah, well maybe, but you know bold is not always synonymous with good.</p><p class="p1">Whiskey for breakfast is a bold choice. Spun glass underwear is bold. Four-head dragon tattoos. Passing an 18-wheeler on a blind curve going 80 in the rain – incredibly bold. Just not that necessarily smart.</p> Tue, 28 Aug 2012 23:39:13 +0000 Seth Samuel 15856 at http://kalw.org Will Durst: The bold choice Will Durst: A staggeringly stumbling trip http://kalw.org/post/will-durst-staggeringly-stumbling-trip-2 <p>Will Durst here, wishing Mitt Romney the heartiest of welcomes home. He&#39;s got to be more relieved than a Midwestern corn farmer in the middle of a thunderstorm to be back on American soil. The GOP nominee embarked on a goodwill trip designed to raise his foreign policy bonafides, but the six-day charm offensive proved to be a bit light on the charm and rather heavy on the offensive.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 08 Aug 2012 22:47:47 +0000 Will Durst 14804 at http://kalw.org Will Durst: A staggeringly stumbling trip
