Two Messages For Tim Burns



Text  



In the special election in Pennsylvania, Tim Burns’s campaign is putting up contrast ads like this:

And a Tim Burns fan has put together this web video, which compares Scott Brown’s victory to the early Massachusetts battles of the American Revolution and this special election to Valley Forge. This video is not for the squeamish, outright coming out and calling President Obama, Senate majority leader Harry Reid, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi “the new tyrants.” But the music and editing are superb; you keep waiting for Paul Giamatti as John Adams to appear and declare that the Continental Congress has approved this message.

It seems a shame to point out that Valley Forge is several congressional districts away, on the eastern side of the state.
