Campaign ad of the day: Wicked witch Nancy Pelosi

Tea party supporter John Dennis has almost no chance of defeating Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this fall. But he can make a catchy campaign ad. The latest is a "Wizard of Oz" inspired YouTube video in which Dennis kills wicked witch Pelosi with a bucket of "freedom."

The spot was directed by Ladd Ehlinger, Jr., the same guy who helped make Dale Peterson a national figure.

Cute, but is that all he's got? If he has to resort this kind of advertising some people might vote for him. I would also think that they would also vote for The Scare Crow, The Cowardly Lion, Dorothy or even Toto.
So much for taste!

I think they need to stop injecting liquid crack into the people that direct these commercials. Political ads are getting crazier every decade.

Witch does come to mind when one understands what this nasty woman has done to this country. Our family is fuming over the health care takeover with all the deception and fraudulent numbers. The "not reading of the bill excuse" is just too stupid for words. If you are too stupid to understand or just to lazy to read it, then vote no. Yes, the witch portrayal was appropriate. Flying her entire family around like she was a little queen on our taxpayer dime. Playing the "I am such a good grandmother" bit just does not fly with me. If she cared about her grandchildren, she would not be dumping on this debt on their future. Our economy is in shambles and this evil woman thinks she is royalty. There are little families out there with kids to feed. I hope the people in San Francisco love their country enough to dump this witch.

If we haven't figured out career politians will say anything to get elected, and then, follow blindly into the darkness of Hell. They don't spend their money and don't have to account for it.

Yes, will corporations deceive us? Sure. But, if we don't like it, we can stop buying their products. That is our choice. Once politicians are concerned, they don't have to pay for their recklessness. Go back to the founding documents of this great nation. See why we should all be alert to government incroachment or takeover. Remember, when Americans are no longer free, there is nowhere else to turn to for freedom. I can imagine you didn't like it when Bush was in office, blaming government for everything. And, now, you love government. Shame on you!

Yeah, Pol's who say one thing and do another. Dems who tepidly defend real people vs. Republicans who actually do fight all out for their corporate masters.

The only freedom Plutublicans like is the freedom of all to be slaves to their masters too. Look at the Pinto, Big tobacco, Enron, Liars Loans that reset to more than people make. Yeah, we should trust the private sector, they've been such stand up folks.
