Democrat Media Monkeys

The Bumpification of the Midterm Elections

Something Else Strategies, the media-consulting firm responsible for “Squeal,” also masterminded a widely noted spot for the Republican Mike McFadden, who is challenging Al Franken for his Senate seat in Minnesota. McFadden, a former college-football player who now coaches a youth team, recruited his players to appear in a “Bad News Bears"-style spot in which they mess up handoffs (“Washington is fumbling our future”) and clobber each other (“Obamacare needs to be sacked”) before the coach rouses them to “get out there and hit somebody.”

At that point, for no particular reason, one player hits him below the belt, leaving the coach to recite the “I’m Mike McFadden, and I approve this message” bit in a high-pitched squeal — the universal signifier of a guy who has just been hit in his junk.

Critics of the McFadden ad questioned whether such a joke might fall beneath the dignity of a prospective United States senator.

Republicans look poised to pick up Congressional seats throughout America a week from today, so it is accordingly time for the New York Times to let its contempt for the portion of America that exists west of the Hudson to fly. The article, entitled “The Bumpkinification of the Midterm Elections” reads like an 800 word grievance against the idea that Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) should have to apologize for suggesting that a farmer is unfit to serve as a Senator. In a fairly representative paragraph, the New York Times displays its exasperation at the idea that politicians should have to apologize for being professional politicians (Red State)

If whining, lying, dishonor and corruption are your idea of dignity, then Harry Reid is your man.
