Let’s jump right on in!
My sister C-Money pointed out that the political ad season seems to start earlier each cycle. We watched a series of political ads this past weekend and…well, truth in advertising clearly does not apply to political ads.
Some group is running ads supporting Congressman Blunt ® against Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D) in the Missouri Senate race. The ads feature a disgusted sounding voice proclaiming that 70% of Missouri voters rejected federal health care reform when it recently came up for a vote. Another Blunt supporting ad goes on and on about how health care reform has hurt small businesses and cost Missouri jobs.
But…but, but…um, hold on a hot minute!
70% of registered voters in Missouri did NOT show their happy asses up in August and reject federal health care reform.
That’s just not true.
70% of the voters who did show up…and around 20% of voters did…voted to diss the benefits of health care reform.
A bitch wonders if the group behind the ad is supporting Blunt based on flawed math…but odds are they fucked up that shit on purpose.
And in what way has federal health care reform already hurt small businesses and cost jobs…and I want specifics, because that shit just passed a few months ago and most of it hasn’t been implemented.
The ad makes it seem as if health care reform passed when President Obama took the oath of office.
And how the hell do we reconcile the argument that Missourians rejected health care reform in August with the argument that health care reform has hurt Missourians?
If 70% of 20% voted to diss it in August, didn’t it get dissed?
Gawd, this shit makes my Afro hurt…and we’ve got weeks of this yet to come.
***logs off praying for at least one demon sheep ad in Missouri to make this shit interesting***
