The Ad That Needs To Be Done

The perfect ad for 2006 is a Wizard of Oz ad. You see different normal families watching TV. On TV is a booming Oz-voice and huge image of George Bush booming on about 9/11 and terrorism and national security. "You will be afraid! You will vote Republican!" Then you see the Dorothy character ask, but didn't you sell out our national security to a dirty 9/11 nation? Toto then pulls the curtain back and it's a snarling Dick Cheney, drinking and holding a shotgun. He blows off the Tin Man's face, who immediately apologizes.

OK, well that last part is not good for the ad, but a Wizard of Oz ad would make the point brilliantly re: national security. If we've learned anything from Karl Rove is you go after a candidate's perceived strength rather than his weaknesses and attack him there. Put him on the defensive were he never expected to have to defend. It keeps them off balance.

Anyway, then in the congressional elections, you show the incumbent Republican lackey rubber stamping everything the Wiz says.

On this issue, this kills the Republican base. If the Dems don't take advantage I have to emigrate.

Here is why that won't happen.

1. The democrats are stupid. I mean, I hate to say it, but they simply lack the raw intelligence to do this.

2. No balls.

3. The noise machine will then start screaming that the Democrats are politicizing national security and that is not right. Yes, this is the Chewbacca defense, but it works.
