For as much money as John Cornyn has, he sure is spending it in the most bizarre ways, and on some of the most in-effective TV ads I can imagine.After mucking up his launch by running ads immediately after Hurricane Ike and running them for two weeks statewide with seeing a negative bump in the polls, his campaign unveiled their latest ad.
John Cornyn has moved from a canyon- to a field of cows.
No, I’m not kidding. Watch it.
This is such a joke. C’mon, gimme a break.
Cornyn has been in lock-step with Bush his entire time in the Senate. He defends him at every turn. He’s as big a problem with what has happened as Bush is. Except he had less power. Regardless, he was with Bush on everything. And I don’t think I can be literal enough about that.
Sadly, this is what he’s up against.
There he was, trying to attract Texans’ attention by holding a Webcast town hall meeting to answer voter questions about his U.S. Senate race.
Two minutes later, Democrat Rick Noriega’s show turned to static. Lots of static. Then the camera tilted upside down. Then more static. The screen went to black. A few voters’ questions could be heard, but Noriega’s answers were often interrupted by audio and video glitches.
Technical troubles aren’t the only difficulties lately for Noriega’s long shot bid to oust Republican Sen. John Cornyn. Faced with Cornyn’s far larger bank account and advantage of incumbency in a predominantly Republican state, Noriega has little room for error. Yet his campaign continues to stumble on matters big and small.
Seriously though, the guy’s name is Rick Noriega, which is a tough name to run on in the U.S., much less Texas.
He’s got a funny ad though.
…which has been seen roughly twice as many times as my own video from last week regarding the economic collapse and who to blame…which inlcudes John Cornyn.
Twice. Which is sad, because I’m not even running for Senate.
From the polls I’ve seen, Corny is up about 6 or 7 points. Hopefully as McFailin continues to implode and Obama surges, it will drag along the Texas electorate. I know that sounds pretty fanciful, but you would be surprised at the Obama/McCain car sticker ratio in Dallas, which is where the “W Museum” is being built (and a “W Hotel” already has been).
