Probably the Most Effective Ad of the Season

Republican Attorney General candidate Gunner DeLay's team has developed what is likely to be the most effective political ad of the Arkansas politcal season. Of course, it helps that his opponent, State Representative Dustin McDaniel, opened his mouth and said he supports homosexual "civil unions". Seventy-five percent of the voters in 04 put in a Marriage Amendment that banned "civil unions" between homosexuals. It is "marriage in all but name". Many suspect that the rest of the state-wide Democratic ticket also supports such arrangements, but they are too smart to say so! All we can say for sure is that McDaniel gave the DeLay campaign a gift.

Of course, one must also have the skills needed to capitalize on your opponent's mistakes. Team DeLay does. The ad they produced was brilliant. The placement of the ad was optimal. Can we expect more of the same? You bet'cha!

To see the ad follow this link. Then come back and tell me if you agree that it will be the most effective ad of the year in terms of moving voters, or if you can suggest another that I have overlooked.

Good ad, but here's the problem with it. It is running during the times of day that kids can see it. Case in point: it ran during the World Series at about 8:30 when my kids were watching with me. Didn't really want them seeing 2 men/woman kissing in wedding gowns right there in front of them.

Your kids are going to see it walking down the streets of your town every day unless we stop them. We have to get the word out, don't kill the messenger.

That may be true and I agree that we need to stop it, however, it does not need to happen in my living room during prime time. Your arguement can be used to justify anything on tv that time of night. Should we allow porn at 7:00 on during Nick at Night? How about showing commercials of people having sex during Dora the Explorer at 9:00 am? A parent needs to at least feel that kids will be protected from those kinds of things during certain times of day on television. You can't possibly disagree with that. No parent would.
What I am saying was the entire argument the mom in Fayetteville made when she wanted questionable books removed from the school libraries (which I agreed with). Parents should not have to worry that kids will be exposed to objectionable material such as porn at school, or on tv in the middle of the day. Delay should run his commercials, but he should be more careful of the time of day.
