Ads Target GOP Senators on Iraq

The presidency isn't the only thing up for grabs next year. Congress is in play too, of course. And as Chris Cillizza reports on The Fix, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), today begins airing ads targeting four vulnerable GOP senators: Sens. Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Susan Collins (Maine), John Sununu (N.H.) and Norm Coleman (Minn.).

Cillizza reports that "all four of the senators being targeted with ads are seen as vulnerable by national Democrats. Coleman, Sununu and Collins have long been on Democrats' target list, but the addition of McConnell was unexpected."

The ads use the same announcer, same video, same graphics, and same ominous music. The only difference is reference to the Senator and photos of them.

The McConnell ad is posted below:

Here's the ad about Sen. Coleman:

The one about Sen. Collins:

And the one targeting Sen. Sununu:

Get ready for plenty of equally dramatic campaign ads from the parties' congressional campaign shops between now and November 2008.

Life goes on. But in a way it is a shame that these moderate Republicans are the ones being targeted. That figures; the voters that elected them are the most likely to switch to Democrats. But it would be better for the country if the Democrats had targeted the nutcase Republicans who disbelieve in evolution and global warming, and oppose abortion and contraception and stem-cell research under any and all circumstances, besides continuing to support the misbegotten Iraq debacle. In a couple more years, *moderate Republican* will be an oxymoron, and any belief in the validity of any modern science will automatically make a voter or a politician become a Democrat.

I aggree that moderates are the most opend minded in the GOP, but the reality is, most of the nutcases are in states that are jsut full of ifiots so it doesn't matter if teh DSCC targets them, they are still going to win. In the end the DSCC has to use its money to maintain and increase their majority and no matter what a moderate Republican is still a member of Bush's party and on most issues, support him
