Democrats Slam Coleman On Iraq
By Chris Cillizza in The Fix:
For the last month -- at least -- the Minnesota Senate race has featured some of the hardest hitting television ads in any contest (the presidential included) in the country.
After Sen. Norm Coleman's campaign released an ad late last week that painted Democratic challenger Al Franken as temperamentally unqualified to be a senator, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee struck back today with an ad that will likely be equally controversial.
The ad features an older couple -- Nancy and Claremont Anderson -- who lost their son in a Blackhawk helicopter crash in Iraq.
Among the extremely tough lines delivered by the tearful couple:
* "I don't blame the Army for our son's death, I just blame the bad policies on President Bush, Norm Coleman who voted for this." (Nancy Anderson)
* "I have no faith in Norm Coleman. He has no ability to make up his own mind." (Claremont Anderson)
* "If Norm Coleman would have stood up to the president and said this is not a good idea maybe he would have listened." (Nancy Anderson)
