New RNC ad: The experiment

The tone’s starkly different but this actually has something in common with that DNC abortion from this morning: Both ads are designed to introduce the buzzwords they want to dominate the conversation on health care this month. Incredibly, with voters nervous about the cost and quality of ObamaCare, the left’s putting its chips on “mobs,” “extremists,” and “extremist mobs.” The GOP, rather more shrewdly, is betting on “experiment” and “government takeover.” For once, I like our odds.

It’s well organized too, ticking off a few of The One’s greatest policy hits as a reason not to trust him this time. The bad news? The music’s hokey and melodramatic, but then it wouldn’t be an RNC ad if it wasn’t. The good news? The line about “desperate photo ops” made me laugh.
