Lol, if this is going to be the way things roll in AR-02 I am feeling a bit better about our chances. Any Democrat will be the underdog against Tim Griffin this year, but I think he’s showing that his campaign skills leave something to be desired. Exhibit A:
Now remember, this ad is entitled “Grandfather”, and he starts off doing a good job talking about his grandfather’s military service (and a bit of his own), then strays off into “Nancy Pelosi! AAAAHHHHH!”
Now, two things on this. First, Republicans have run against Nancy Pelosi in two election cycles. It didn’t help, even in tough districts. She riles up die hard Republicans, but with most people she’s not the first thing on their minds. Second, does Tim Griffin really want to talk about fiscal responsibility? Especially after the hit job his former boss George Bush and the Republican party did on the federal budget after Bill Clinton got us out of the red? And really, does he want to talk about the Bush years at all considering it opens the door to conversation about the Attorney Firing Scandal and how Mr. Griffin got his old job through corruption and nepotism?
