Deja Vu

Ad #1 from 2008:

Ad #2 out today in Maine:

And surprise, surprise, Schubert Flint, the same consultants who worked for 2, 4, 6, 8, Let's All Go Discriminate Yes on 8 campaign in California, are consulting for Yes On 1, the campaign trying to strip LGBT couples of their rights.

Our side should hammer back with the message that Maine voters aren't drones whose buttons can be pushed by the exact same, word-for-word ad in California. A new ad, perhaps web ad, with the two cut side by side is one idea. If what the folks I know on the ground tell me- that negative ads in Maine don't work well above and beyond what you would expect in other states- there is potential to blow this up into a backlash.

Especially since Jeremy Hooper points out the "teacher" in the Maine ad, Charla Bansley, is actually the state director of Concerned Women for America of Maine, a teacher at Calvary Christian Chapel School, and has worked on behalf of anti-marriage equality campaign, Yes On 1. Wow.

No On 1/Protect Maine Equality is on the OpenLeft Better Dems page. Chip in to hit back against this crap.

Is NOM that lazy? (0.00 / 0)
Really? They can't even come up with any new ideas to justify discrimination and bigotry? What cowards. Frank Schubert should be ashamed of himself.

Yes, Virginia, there are progressives in Nevada.

Yup, the lazyness is surprising! (4.00 / 1)
What sloppy work, introducing a well known partisan in an ad as a mere "teacher"? Weren't they able to come up with one fresh face that wouldn't have opened them up to criticism of hypocrisy? Well, maybe they really were unable to find at least one average Jane who would support their crap...
