The hallmark of this presidential campaign season has been bitter warfare among Republicans. It is the worst kind of PR -- fratricide. Rather than aiming at the President, candidates are stabbing each other and delivering low blows whenever they can. What does the public think of such cage matches? It would not be an overstatement to say that the mass of voters are disgusted with all of them. Of course, that helps the incumbent's chances for re-election. Maybe this year will teach candidates to refrain from pummeling one another and focus again on issues, but don't bet on it.
