Two Anti-Dem Ads

Eh. They're both okay. Not sure if they'll change any minds.

From Joe: An ad about Dick Durbin and the "America can do no right" contingent.

From Karol, this ad making the point that this isn't your parents' Democratic Party anymore.

I think there's some potential in that sort of take. The Democratic Party retains a lot of goodwill created by its previous icons and heroes... but do today's Democrats really have much in common at all with JFK?

Can that be persuasive? Well, at one point I loved Woody Allen, then I suffered through a lot of his horrific eighties and nineties films still trying to believe I loved him, and then one day I just decided he sucked and I wouldn't see another one of his pictures for the rest of my life. (I made an exception for Manhattan Murder Mystery, as it sounded cute and funny, and goshdarnit, so it was.)

How long can the Democrats ride JFK? Especially given the lack of anyone even close to JFK in its ranks?

You know, when Ritchie left Happy Days, the show was never the same. Indeed, just before he left was when the show (quite literally) jumped the shark.
