Wonder what you would find if you frisked Martha Coakley’s campaign?
Answer: A lot of union funding and support… well the support might be iffy.
Hmm… So much for Martha Coakley’s campaign having a lot of grassroot support behind her:
A major national union supporting Democrat Martha Coakley is taking out a massive TV ad buy that slams her Republican rival, Scott Brown, for his positions on abortion and climate change.
The ad taken out by the Service Employees International Union, will begin airing statewide tomorrow. The buy size is $685,000, one of the largest of the election.
“Before you vote for Senate, here’s a few things you should know about Scott Brown,” says a narrator in the 30-second spot. The narrator then says he “has repeatedly opposed a woman’s right to choose” and he “expresses skepticism that climate change is being caused by humans.”
HAHA! Don’t worry liberals, I’m not laughing at the fact that she got a large chunk of change to smother the airwaves with attack advertisements. It’s the fact that the money is being spent on advertisements that are a complete distortion of the facts. Perhaps Ms. Coakley should have paid more attention to Scott Brown in the debates… or the weather outside:
Brilliant. When most of the nation is locked in a deep freeze, these mega-tools are going to bring up the discredited man-made global warming hoax. As for opposing a “right to choose,” Brown is pro-choice so that line of attack just reeks of desperation.
If you don’t find any of that amusing, maybe you will find this group of union workers rallying for Martha Coakley entertaining:
Haha… Now that’s what you call priceless! If you couldn’t hear the audio that well, I’ll explain what just happened: A member of the Sheet Metal Workers union admitted that he was being forced to come down and hold a Coakley sign, but says he doesn’t mind because he’s being paid $50. Moments later he openly admits that he’s voting for Scott Brown and high-fives another Brown supporter.
Got to love it. If you would like to contribute a couple dollars to Scott Brown’s campaign for U.S. Senate, click here. The special election is January 19, 2010 so we all need to act fast.
Side-Note: Hey, remember when Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused townhall protesters of astroturfing? Yeah… For their own personal good they just shouldn’t talk sometimes.
Random-Note: For all you New England Patriots and Boston College fans, Doug Flutie has just endorsed Scott Brown! Check out the video:
Go get’em Scott!
