Tim Burns Hilarious Ad for Congress (PA, 12th District)
Matt | On 11, May 2010
I saw this clip over at Talking Points Memo this morning and had to post it!
Tim Burns, a Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s 12th district, has an ad promoting his bid for Congress. The clip is sponsored by the conservative group, Right Change. He is looking to replace the seat vacated when Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) passed away in February.
In the ad, cartoonish figures of Barack Obama and Harry Reid concoct an oversized version of Nancy Pelosi, fed by bailouts and taxes. The only way to bring down the King Kong-like Pelosi is from laser beams thrown by Tim Burns. Elementary, yes! But, for some reason, I thought it was really funny. A creative spin, of sorts, on political ads which are already corny as is.
