Patriotic Pushback

I see that G-Man has returned in force. Welcome back!

Powerline has done a fine job commenting on the "Midwest Heroes" advertising and the stink put up by local lefties and the Democrat party. They do a takedown on odious Minneapolis Star Tribune writer Nick Coleman, a whiner in the the greatest Democrat tradition.

I myself thought the first ad rather confrontational and political. It is remnicient of the first Swift Boat ad that raised quite a ruckus and generated a great deal of free media for itself.

The second ad, featuring family members who want the country to know that they support the sacrifice of their loved one, is much more appealing, again much like the Swifty campaign that turned to the old soldiers to tell their side of the story.

I appreciate that the local Democrats have taken the bait and cried foul on this attempt to communicate a positive message about OIF. By all means, do all you can to silence these people. Hey, they only had a son or daughter die in service of this country.

BTW - Too bad they didn't hire Tom Barnard to do the voiceover for the ads; the guy they're using was most recently heard doing cheesy Miller High Life beer spots. I almost expect to hear the "You're Living, the High Life" tagline at the end of the Midwest Heroes ad.

I hear you on the radio as you speak. Good advertising.

Thanks Hammerswing. It was a lot of fun, even if it only lasted a couple minutes.
