This rationalization of inappropriate political tactics is offensive. Does the GOP need to track, or rather stalk, a Democrat in this state? Republicans already have total control. They have more power and control than Putin's United Russia party has in that country. If I was inclined to support the Republicans, I would have second thoughts about donating any money to them that might be used for stalking.

Politics in our country are not supposed to be a "game." People are supposed to be elected to represent us. Period. Stop with the games and dirty politics.

Unfortunately, dirty tactics win elections. Ask Karl Rove. Like him or not you have to admit that his tactics are not clean.

The Dems do it to. Look at Blagojevich.

The only way it will stop is if we demand that it stops. While that is easy to say, it always comes down to a "we'll quit when they quit" mentality. I look forward to the politician for whom I can really support instead of choosing the lesser of two evils.
