If you want to explore the roots of recent negative campaign ads and tactics, check out Nov. 11's "Frontline" on PBS, "Boogie Man": Says the promo: "FRONTLINE presents a spirited and revealing biography of Lee Atwater, the charming, Machiavellian godfather of modern take-no-prisoners Republican political campaigns. Through eye-opening interviews with Atwater's closest friends and adversaries, producer Stefan Forbes explores the life of the controversial political operative who mentored Karl Rove and George W. Bush, led the GOP to historic victories, and wrote the party's winning playbook."
