<span style='font-size: 11pt'>In one typical example, Democratic ads have transformed Kentucky Republican House candidate Andy Barr into "a convicted criminal" -- complete with images yellow police tape and fuzzy video of crime scenes. Not mentioned is his crime: As a college student 19 years ago, he was caught using a fake ID during spring break.</span>

As you watch this year's ads -- and I've been watching all too many lately -- you'll notice a striking difference between Democratic and Republican attack ads: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Democrats are attacking over personal issues, Republicans are attacking over policy.</span>

There are, of course, many exceptions, but the overall trend is clear. Democrats are hitting their Republican opponents over past legal transgressions, shady business deals and even speeding tickets. Republicans are hammering Democrats over "Obamacare," Nancy Pelosi and the economy.

A recent study by the Wesleyan Media Project actually quantifies this. They looked at 900,000 airing of political ads this year and concluded: <span style='font-size: 17pt'>"Democrats are using personal attacks at much higher rates than Republicans and a much higher rate than Democrats in 2008."</span>

The democrooks have nothing to run on except fear, lies, and hate. (http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/vote-2010-elections-democratic-closing-argument-personal-attacks/story?id=11996410)

Desperation is in the air. Democrats know the ballot hammer is about to be lowered.
Projections now are 60+ in the house and 8+ in the senate. Blue states are turning red.

I predict a tie in the senate, a minimum of +60 seats in the house, and a minimum of 32 governors.
