You can’t watch an episode of “Boating Naked” or “Afraid to Cook Naked” or “Naked with Thomas the Tank Engine” these days without getting hit square in the mug with a political ad.
Let us take a look at a few of the latest!
First, from Lee Terry, a new ad on the topic of the helium reserves.
Hahahaha! We kid! It’s on Brad Ashford’s support of and resistance to change the “Good Time” law, of course.
See “One Bullet” here:
Say what you will about that topic (oh, and OWH, can we get you a nice goat cheese to go with that whine?), but this is an effective ad, delivered well by the Omaha Police Union’s John Wells. It is an in-your-face spot by a strong advocate on the message of the day.
All we can figure is this message MUST be moving the dial for Terry, or they wouldn’t be pounding it over and over again. Look for Ashford to attack more, or to at least pop his head out of the Whack-a-Mole game the DCCC has secured him in. The more you hear him talk, the closer the race will be.
And then Brad Ashford has a new ad up on Part B Medicare Reimbursement.
Hohoho! (Slapping knee.) Of course it’s not! It is on Terry saying “Dang Straight”.
See it here:
How hilarious that they use the OWH’s “We [the all-knowing fact-checkers for you slovenly mouth-breathers] have examined the facts [of which there can be NO disagreement, because WE decide what the facts are, cretins] and endorsed Ashford.”
Funny how often the populace examines the facts and goes the opposite way of the OWH’s endorsements, yeah?
And then the hilarious endorsement from two “Republicans”.
First, it’s Lincoln Senator Kathy Campbell.
What, no Scottsbluff area state Senators to tell the 2nd District voters what to do?
As one politico noted about Campbell…
…Champion of liberal causes – led the fight for Medicaid expansion and prenatal for illegal aliens. Generally an unreliable vote on important GOP issues like tax cuts, guns, voter ID, winner-take-all, etc. Also generally assumed that she voted with Democrats on committee chairs and leadership votes. Big spending, big government “Republican.”
And “it’s time for Lee Terry to go”?
Well, we will say that’s some freaking nerve from a “Republican” state Senator.
We can sort of understand saying you support your Unicameral colleague. And we see what some local Republicans are doing by sitting on their hands in the race, hoping to get THEIR shot in 2016 — however short-sighted and lacking judgment a view that is.
But, as an office holder, to describe yourself as a “Republican”, and then call for the ouster of the sitting Congressman? If there is a method of excommunication from the Party, it should be exercised. Or maybe exorcised. Something along the lines of, “The Power of Reagan COMPELS you!”
But seriously, we laugh at the new OWH editorial that could not be any whinier, and really just some sort of strange list of talking points from the Ashford campaign.
“Brad Ashford didn’t make Nikko pull the trigger!!!!!
Brad Ashford didn’t behead anyone!!!!!!”
You see voter, the OWH will explain to your feeble mind how to draw a line from A to C.
Now don’t you nevermind letter B there. They will tell you what to do.
Let us now just dig through the OWH archives and find that Editorial about how Lee Terry didn’t cause the Ebola outbreak like the Ashford campaign claims. Darnit! It MUST be in there somewhere…
And as long as we’re piling on the the ads, take a look at Channel 7’s analysis.
We heard Dave Roberts final thoughts of…
One of the ads in this race gained national attention tonight. The Republican National Committee’s [actually the NRCC, but whatever] attempt to link Ashford to serial killer Nikko Jenkins, another inmate released early for the Good Time law. Democrats call the ad racist and misleading. “TIME” magazine just put it on the list of the “Most Terrifying Ads” of the 2014 Election.
And like your’s, our first reaction was, “There’s still a TIME Magazine?”
But as long as we are talking about how Brad Ashford thinks the Good Time law is just hunky dory, we find it curious that the Democrats call the ad “racist”. Because, why? Because Jenkins is black?
Because what about an ad saying, “Ashford will vote just like…Barack Obama!“, with a picture of Ashford next to the President?
Is THAT racist?
We grant you that Jenkins is a scary looking person.
And that is because HIS FACE AND HEAD ARE COVERED WITH TATOOS!
TIME Magazine (kids, this is one of those paper products on the back shelves at Walgreens) says the ad is “Terrifying”.
Now, what if Jenkins didn’t look freaky. Would it still be “terrifying”? Or is TIME Magazine racist?
You know who else looks freaking scary?
As far as we know, this guy hasn’t killed anyone.
He makes millions of dollars in the NBA. But he freaks us out every time we look at him.
If he came up to your car late at night, would you ask him for an autograph, or would you roll up the window as quickly as possible?
So let us suggest that the racists ones are the people who think the NRCC ad is somehow derogatory, simply because Jenkins is black.
Onto happier ads, there is the another ad for Terry for pushing renewable energy.
See it here:
We are looking forward to the next OWH editorial:
FACT: Scientists in lab coats do NOT fight against terrorists with RPGs!
FACT: We studied this ad and Brad has waaay more lab coats than Lee Terry.
So the reporter who caught Ebola in Liberia comes to Omaha and is declared “Ebola-free” in a week and a half.
Dude has the organ stewing disease that is currently the scourge of the planet, so he goes to the NU Med Center, downs a few Runzas and is good to go.
On the other hand, we’ve had the same cold for a month and half, and the phlegm cough that never ends.
Does anyone else see the hand of Big Kleenex keeping the cure down?
