The Campaign Spot

The Most Tragic Love Story of Our Time


I think this latest ad from Sharron Angle is a good one, because it’s a little funny, it’s pretty straightforward and hard to refute, and it’s easy to remember.

I see it and think about all the optimistic talk about job creation when the stimulus passed, and I’m assured that the Angle folks have a good, long memory about Harry Reid’s confidence that these policies would help bring down Nevada’s unemployment rate.

The ad buy for Angle is 1600 points — again, for most campaigns, that’s a normal buy for the final week or so.

UPDATE: From a reader: “I’ve been a critic of her campaign to date, but if she keeps running ads like that I would nominate Sharron Angle for Sun King.”
