Toxic Campaigner: Lee Atwater

Tonight on Frontline: Boogie Man: the Lee Atwater Story.

Atwater is the man who was instrumental in teaching Karl Rove, George W Bush and the Republicans how to campaign. I hope the punditry watches this show so they too will see why bi-partisanship can only go so far.

From what I've heard, this is a terrific show. From David Zurawik, The Baltimore Sun

... This finely crafted political biography dissects and explains the nastiness of U.S. politics during the past three decades like nothing I have read or viewed. ...

Don't miss it.

I wish the Dems had an Atwater.
