Anecdotal Evidence

Just how unpopular are the bailouts of Chrysler and Government Motors? So unpopular that their competitors are using the bailouts as ammunition in attack ads. This one was in a local paper today:

Now, if a business with its existence on the line is confident enough about public opinion to run that tough of an attack in a full-page ad, just extrapolate what an actual political ad aimed at, say, a congressional candidate would look like.

  1. Bring it. Given how unpopular this whole fiasco appears to be with the populace, I'll bet these ads will be hugely effective.

    I'd love to see a real Tea Party movement candidate run with these kinds of ads. It's truly a target-rich environment, and there are enough disaffected voters to swing several Congressional seats to a new party.

    Most people think I'm nuts; that the two-party system is either not broken, too entrenched, or "just the way things are". That's crap. The current system is broken, with too many entrenched power brokers.

    Flush the system. Time to revolt.
