Norm Coleman mails “rape” comic book to Minnesota’s children

hey john,

I got a self-mailer from the NRSC [National Republican Senatorial Committee] today.

My wife and I have 3 small boys under 6 years old. So when I saw the cartoon cover that says “Come on in kids…” then talks about rape with a little girl on the opposite page you can guess my utter disgust.

I’m just glad I got to it before my 6 year old. He doesn’t need to be exposed to this.

What the hell is going on with the NRSC?

I am absolutely livid.






How sick are the Republicans? Creating a children’s book talking about rape, and then sending it to Minnesota’s children, all on behalf of Norm Coleman. So much for Coleman claiming the negative advertising was going to stop. (Then again, Coleman was at a rally last week where Obama was compared to mass murderer Charles Manson.) But making sleazy campaign literature look like a children’s book, then sending it unwrapped into Minnesotans’ homes so their kids can find it. Not very Senatorial. Here’s a mailing that AMERICAblog reader JW just got yesterday from the Republican party supporting Norm Coleman against Al Franken.

PS Anyone else think the Republicans drew Franken a bit “ethnic,” shall we say?
