Ad Targets Red State Democrat "Puppet Senators"

An ad against Mark Pryor (but which I imagine is a template ad which can be used against other Democrats) ties Pryor to Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, even as Pryor attempts to claim distance from those figures.

It's making a point I've long tried to make: These Red State Democrat Senators are permitted to posture as reflecting their more-conservative electorate, while actually supporting the full progressive agenda jot-by-tittle.

On the occasional tough vote, people like Pryor will be allowed to cast an arranged vote against a progressive bill, but only because the caucus has corralled enough votes in favor of it to guarantee its safe passage and thus liberated a few Senators to cast a harmless tactical vote which will appeal to their constituents.

When the caucus needs Mark Pryor's vote -- as it did on Obamacare -- of course he delivers it with gusto.

It's like Tex Watson trying to "distance" himself from Charles Manson.

A little over-the-top in some parts, but maybe some will appreciate that.
