Blogger sure is going to miss these freaky deaky ads after the election

posted at 6:18 pm on September 13, 2010 by Allahpundit

Yes, of course it’s directed by Ladd “Dale Peterson” Ehlinger, who’s carved out a sweet niche for himself as the go-to guy for little-known candidates desperately needing to make a splash. This one’s for John Dennis, a.k.a. Nancy Pelosi’s Republican challenger. If you’re wondering whether he stands a chance, well, since 1990 Madam Speaker hasn’t received less than 71 percent of the vote in her district — and the year she ran that “badly,” it was because Cindy Sheehan peeled a bunch of hard-hard-left liberals from her. (The Republican candidate finished a distant third.) In fact, in the glorious year of 1994, Pelosi won … 82/18. As things stand, the only question here is whether the big red wave will wash into her district and knock her below 70. Although I suppose there’s a chance that the rapidly approaching end of her speakership will so dispirit her that she’ll resign sometime in the next seven weeks, thus freeing the seat. Maybe? Please?

Awesome ad.

Is this ad sexist?

Did that face dissolve when splashed with water ?

macncheez on September 13, 2010 at 6:22 PM

Wait, they actually put in that “(obligatory McCain-Feingold….)” part?

Oh dear lord that is just so awesome.

I disapprove of this ad.

Pelosi’s sin is not hypocrisy, as Dennis says. Her sin is that she is a dyed in the wool leftist and proud of it.

Ha, ha – good work! I like that John Dennis. He’s been doing good yeoman’s work trying to win what most people would dismiss as an unwinnable race for months. My hat’s off to him for trying to give the people of San Fransisco a real choice this November.

It’s San Francisco. I’m surprised they didn’t find Pelosi too moderate after she ruled-out impeaching Bush.

Pelosi will die in office, with her Pay and Owe sheet on her lap….trying to bargain the fate of others in exchange for prolonging her own miserable life.

I have a feeling that she`s the kind who`ll never, no matter how small it is, let power slip from her claws.

ThePrez on September 13, 2010 at 6:43 PM

and the year she ran that “badly,” it was because Cindy Sheehan peeled a bunch of hard-hard-left liberals from her.

And as a result San Francisco elected a “Republican” in the Primary election who Cindy Sheehan and Adam Kokesh are supporting by participating in his Radiothon to raise money for his campaign.

When Republican candidates host an anti-war rally in San Francisco, we know we have a whole new definition of RINO.

Depends on what you mean.
The Wizard of Oz seems to hold a special place in the heart of gay culture. Possibly because, in the second book, the main character is boy who is turned back into a beautiful princess after discovering that he was born a girl.

Desperate causes (running against Pelosi) call for desperate measures. If you’re going to be a sacrificial lamb to the Wicked Witch, you might as well have a good laugh!

Well if he has a conservative opponent in the primary, Hot Air’s all in for Dennis!

Compare the ad to the Palin ads, if they weren’t sexist how could this possible be.

“John Dennis is dreamy… only he can defeat Nancy Pelosi… any ‘conservative’ who doesn’t vote for John Dennis is a loon who makes personal attacks on me,” -Jenfidel.

“You morons don’t understand, vote for John Dennis in the Primary, he will vote for a Republican chair for the Subcommittee for Forcing People to Recycle or Else. We can’t have Dems running these committees,” -JohnGalt23.

Akzed on September 13, 2010 at 7:28 PM

The California Primary was earlier this summer.

So the other candidates running against Pelosi are set at:

Gloria LaRiva – Peace & Freedom Party (Socialist)

Phillip Berg – an anti-war Libertarian

Summer Shields – a Lyndon LaRouche Democrat who is running as a write-in candidate

So when it comes to foreign policy, Pelosi is the moderate in this race in San Francisco.

Of course, one always has the option of writing in a vote for “None of the Above.”

Akzed on September 13, 2010 at 7:45 PM

I think they ought to have an ad with Pelosi in a bus stop bathroom and a Republican knocking on the stall door with Pelosi screeching: “I’m trying to pass this bill so I can see what’s in it”.

Vince on September 13, 2010 at 8:15 PM

Need a WAAAHmbulance? Big tent GOP could use a few liberty leaning republicans and the filmmaker Ladd “Dale Peterson” Ehlinger is a libertarian. So get over yourself.

Firefly_76 on September 13, 2010 at 8:59 PM

Funny ad, but Dennis’ only real chance of getting above 20% was if he only had a drag queen playing Dorothy. Oh well…

Ehlinger, keep up the good work.

Lance Murdock on September 13, 2010 at 9:24 PM

Dorothy is a cutie.

Republicans really need to make more attack ads like this. People whined about how “slick” Obama’s ads were (especially the one that bashed Hillary Clinton), well, the Republicans, when they start taking to the right people, can do just as well, or better.

Virus-X on September 14, 2010 at 3:12 AM

Me, you, agreed!

We had to suffer through those stupid liberal Gulf Oil attack ads against several candidates right here on Hot Air. This isn’t any worse than a scene where they’re pulling Senator Burr out of an oil slick and trying to clean him like he’s an animal.

Fire with fire and be brutal.

Not many, but thousands of people outside of that district are watching the vid (Drudge has linked it, too).

Good ad. If you don’t think Pelosi can be defeated then you haven’t looked at her approval ratings from her constituents. They’re mad as hell at her, and will only vote against a Republican (rather than vote for her). Dennis is doing a good job of showing them that he isn’t the typical war-mongering neoconservative GOP hack.
