Republican Congressional/Senate Ads for Dummies


Guess what? I have come up with a formula for a television ad any Republican running for Congress or Senate in Indiana could use.

Meet (name of candidate). (Name of candidate) was raised (insert details of family upbringing here) where he learned good Christian values and a respect for the sanctity of life. (Name of candidate) manages (either small business or family farm) and employs daily common sense management approaches he will take with him to Washington. (Name of candidate) will fight the liberal policies of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi who want to (insert hot button wedge issue here).

Candidate: I'm (name of candidate) and I approve this message because (insert some justification).


What do you think? Should I charge them for this?

OK...let's try one.

Meet John Doe. John Doe was raised by a pack of wild boars where he learned good Christian values and a respect for the sanctity of life. John Doe manages the family pig farm and employs daily common sense management approaches he will take with him to Washington. John Doe will fight the liberal policies of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi who want to destroy us all with their socialist agenda.

John Doe: I'm John Doe, and I approve this message because (oink) I love my country and our freedom.


Would you vote for John Doe? It's embellished a bit, but it just kind of sounds like the kinds of ads Republicans are running.
