remarks made during the run-up to elections.
1. Little kids playing in a giant mud puddle throwing mud at each other, therefore being known as "mud-slinging."
2. Just another politician trying to make a point and get somewhere in the presidential campaign. These pointless acts of slandering the other candidates are also known in the Congressional area as well, like during the elections of State Representatives and Senators.
2. Those stupid politicians are so lame with their mud-slinging.
2) A maker of pottery, usually on a potters wheel. This is due to the fact that as the wheel spins it "slings" slip or mud.
2) "As a mud-slinger the artist produces some beautiful bowls and cups."
