Umm OK .. Alvin Greene’s First Attack Ad
Matt | On 03, Aug 2010
America’s favorite candidate for U.S. Senate in South Carolina, Alvin Greene, released his first campaign “attack” ad.*blink .. blink*
The TV spot was aimed at his opponent in the race, Sen. Jim DeMint, a Republican, who is running for re-election in the seat. Alvin “tried” to hit below the belt using a pretty run-of-the-mill negative ad with a haunting voice stating how DeMint supported “Wall Street fat cats” and “Bush’s failed energy policies.”
Personally, I think he could have come a little harder in the ad. I mean, DeMint did not support the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (i.e., the Senate version of the major health care legislation). He also just voted against bringing the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010 to a full floor vote, just ahead of his August recess.
DeMint’s track record has been failing long after the financial collapse and Bush’s presidency. Any check of the recent news will let you know that Republicans haven’t supported much of anything to advance this country forward in 2010.
I’m also gonna need a brand spanking new stock photo of Big Al. If I see him looking confusingly into the distance one more time in that same tired photo, I’m gonna scream. He needs to put on a suit, beat that face, and head to the nearest Olan Mills IMMEDIATELY!!! America CANNOT take him seriously in that green landscaping attire. Well, we really can’t take him seriously PERIOD, but I’m trying to be nice here.
Also, was it me or did the graffiti at the very end of his ad remind you of the opening credits of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
