New NRSC Ad Leaves The Gun, Takes The Canoli

As liberal MSNBC (white, of course) host Dylan Ratigan sagely observed, the GOP is using the foulest of Italian stereotypes to hurt the Italian (by way of Greece) Alexi Giannoulias.

Giannoulias... Such a classic Italian name.

You'd sort of have to be a whitebread jackass to not realize that name was Greek, right? The sort of guy born with the surname "Ratigan," whose hippie-dippie parents named him "Dylan," right?

Anyway... when will this anti-Italian assault on the descended-from-a-country-just-an-Andriatic-away-from-Italy might-as-well-be-an-Italian stop?

Thanks to chip.

Sharron Angle also is now returning Harry Reid's fire with a good new ad.

I like Angle's ad better... it gets to the heart of the reason for change.

The anti-Giannoulias ad isn't as effective for two reasons: These funny ads continue to undermine the seriousness of the allegations, making them seem like a goof; and I don't think people care all that much about scandals. Particularly in ObamaTown.
