RGA Spends $250K on Ad for John Kasich. Mediocre. Oh hum
What do you think? Maybe the bar was set high with images still floating in my head of Senate candidate Lee Fisher shirtless and masturbating.
The messaging is correct- Unemployment did double on Ted Strickland’s watch and its now a 11%, with many counties in far worse shape than that.
But this this the way to present it? These actors seem to be barely awake, with awkward pauses. Please watch, and if I’m simply being too jaded, leave a comment because I’d love to be wrong:
“He didn’t get the jobs done?” That’s the zinger?
And this is all that can be said about Troopergate?
Here is the ad that the RGA ran to support Ken Blackwell in 2006. As a Blackwell staffer, I remember being quite upset with it too. Bright red coloring, a gentle overview of one of Ted Strickland’s many socially liberal positions, and general lameness:
Conservative blogs should attack this ad, in hopes of urging the RGA to stop wasting money.
