I discovered this great new ad from Scott Brown yesterday at HotAir. I think it’s pitch perfect for his campaign, and anyone who supports him (or at least, opposes Elizabeth Warren) should spread it around. Hopefully they can pare it down for a TV ad.
Scott Brown, by all logic, should be losing this election badly (and shouldn’t have been elected in the first place, for that matter), because, after all, this is Massachusetts (and this is a Presidential election year). However, he’s neck and neck with Elizabeth Warren. This is mainly due to her being a terrible candidate (I always say she’s like Coakley minus the charisma, credentials, and credibility) overall, her off putting personality (as demonstrated in her shrill and angry delivery of her anti-capitalist remarks in this video), and the controversy over her ancestry (follow @Fauxcahontas4MA on twitter for updates). Scott is also a likable guy, but that isn’t going to be enough to get him across the finish line (note to self: cut him another check). He may only vote with the GOP 55% of the time, but that’s better than having Warren vote against it 100% of the time. It’s worth supporting him to keep the woman who professed (before it became politically toxic) to have laid the “intellectual foundation” of the Occupy Wall Street movement (which part? the drum circles, the rape-free zones or the shitting in public?) out of the Senate. Scott at least understands what the American Dream is about. That’s the message of this video. Scott Brown gets it. Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama do not.
Obama will almost certainly carry MA, so Scott will need to run well ahead of Romney to win. It’s bold of Scott to include Obama in an ad against Warren, but his “you didn’t build that” remarks are so widely reviled and echo Warren’s so perfectly, putting them in really drives the message home. Scott Brown positions himself as the true heir to the legacy of revered Democratic icons of the past who praised the American free enterprise system rather than denigrate it like Warren and Obama. He also invokes Reagan, who (let’s not forget), carried Massachusetts twice. Scott Brown did win running against big government before, and MA did vote for Romney as Governor. Who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky again with Romney (at the very least we can force Obama to expend resources here), but we should be able to defend the people’s seat. As this ad reminds MA voters, this isn’t their father’s Democratic party any more.
