Both Republican Mark Kirk and Democrat Alexi Gioannoulias went way negative today with new ads. To wit:
As a 34-year-old myself, I think 34-year-olds everywhere should protest this age-based smear. John F. Kennedy began his campaign for the U.S. senate, which he won, when he was 34. And there are lots of other 34-year-olds of note: Um, Colin Farrell, Rashida Jones, Freddie Prinze, Jr., 50 Cent, Erin Burnett (in a couple days), Reese Witherspoon. . . well, never mind.
