Republicans Are Out of Bullets
Wah, hah, hah, hah.
It looks like the Republicans are out of politicals bullets and have been reduced to firing blanks.
The media is giving wide coverage to the nonexisting Republican ad buy that shows Osama bin Laden in all his evilness with the words "these are the stakes." They're trying to scare voters to keep the GOP in power.
To CNN's credit, they refused to show the full ad. No $$$, no pony for the show!
As Dana Milbank of the Washington Post pointed out to Chris Matthews on "Hardball" last night, the campaign ad was a measly ad buy. GOPers were hoping to create buzz and free media play.
In the meantime, AOL posted a poll asking readers whether the GOP ad will make them "more or less likely to vote for Republicans?"
A whopping 67 percent said less likely; only a mere 33 percent said more likely; and we know these folks are going to vote for Republicans even if it's the last thing they do as the political Titanic overwhelms and sinks their fun little SeaDoos.
Enjoy the ride; you've got less than three weeks. Yep, time is up, folks. For the GOP, it's all over but the soon-to-come crying.
