Liberal Group Buys Anti-GOP Ads on Hotel TV
By Ed O'Keefe
ST. PAUL -- The Campaign for America's Future, a progressive group active with Democratic and liberal causes, will air a TV ad this week that "thanks" conservatives and Republicans for the past eight years and promises, "we'll take it from here."
To the tune of the song, "Thanks for the Memories," images of flood-ravaged post-Katrina New Orleans, gas pump price dials, a foreclosure sign on a front lawn and the president's "Mission Accomplished" banner flash on screen.
The ad started airing Sunday night and airs all week in 365,000 hotel rooms nationwide, including 5,000 in the Twin Cities region on The Hotel Networks, an in-room TV service used by hotel chains nationwide. (It's that channel offering pay-per-view movies that you often see first when you turn on a hotel television.) The group wanted to make an ad buy for Twin Cities-area hotels only, but could only make a nationwide ad buy instead, according to the group.
