A Colorado Attack Ad, Sharp as a Stilletto


This ad, for Colorado GOP Senate candidate Jane Norton against her primary opponent Ken Buck, is pretty eye-opening:

Apparently Buck’s “high heels” comment is in response to an earlier Norton ad where she said people would expect him to be “man enough” to run attack ads himself; instead, outside groups are running anti-Norton ads.

I’m not sure that her “man enough” comment or his “high heels” comment serve either speaker well.

And I’d note that, at least according to urban legend, high heels never stopped J. Edgar Hoover from being an effective law-enforcement administrator.
