Attack Ads

Jack and Jill Politics says the latest Kerry Healy ad attacking Deval Patrick is racist. I’m not 100% sure, but it’s definitely sleazy.

What really bugs me, of course, is the vague grammar of the final line: “Lawyers have a right to defend admitted cop-killers, but do we really want one as our governor?”

Is Kerry Healy’s campaign trying to imply that Deval is a cop-killer, or a lawyer? And which is worse in the eyes of the public?
