CT Senate Ad Just A Tad On The "Creepy" Side

Joe Lieberman, the Senator from my home State of CT, has a challenge from the Left for his seat this year - from the far Left. His opponent Ned Lamont has about as much hope of defeating him as Howard Stern does of being invited to Buckingham Palace. But the Kos Kids have made Lamont their number one poster boy for this interim election.

There are two new ads up at Lamont's webite. One is a thirty-second spot that has a dog barking at a "Lieberman For Senate" sign. The voice-over refers to Lieberman in terms that are familiar on the Left such as "George Bush's lapdog" (and you just know the moonbats would have preferred to use the phrase "George Bush's bitch"). Pretty amateurish, pretty lame.

But the creepy one is the sixty-second ad. Lamont starts off as a normal looking guy who believes that the President is wrong (on pretty much everything) and he comes across as a typical credible Senate candidate. He's sitting in his living room, talking to the audience with tempered enthusiasm about his campaign.

Then, all of a sudden you see this weird stalker-looking guy come up to the bay window behind him and peer inside. Your first impression is "WTF?". Turns out it's none other than the Grand Poobah Moonbat himself, Markos "Screw Them" Moulitsas Zuniga (aka Kos). He then bursts into Lamont's living room with a handful of people wearing "Ned Lamont For Senate" t-shirts and they're all cheering. Come to think of it, it's probably the first time that these people have smiled since before the 2004 Presidential election.

It's probably meant to be irreverent and funny but anyone familiar with Kos and his boisterous band of bitter Bush-haters gets the message: Lamont is Kos's lap-dog and his only base of support comes from this fringe MoveOn.org group of Left-wing kooks. Anyone not familiar with Kos will look at this ad and think "Who the freak are these people? They look like some kind of cult."

Actually, that would be a pretty apt observation.

Check out AllahPundit's "remix" version of the ad at HotAir.com. Hysterical!

1 Creepy? C'mon, its a totally innocuous little ad. If anything, its kinda fun, and exciting - at least that is the impression it gives. Says nothing much, but hey, its a political ad. I get the impression that a lot of the RW 1) just want to take shots at Kos, and since he appears in the ad, they gotta think up something insulting to say, irresepctive of the reality, and 2) maybe the ad offends their core belief that a political ad is supposed to be dirty, nasty, insulting and dishonest?

2 maybe the ad offends their core belief that a political ad is supposed to be dirty, nasty, insulting and dishonest You mean like, say, comparing Bush to Hitler?

3 Seeing these people barge into this poor guy's house uninvited just reminds me of why we have a Second Amendment. A little birdshot upside the head and these dudes be gone.

4 They ran the 60-second ad tonight during local news on WTNH, New Haven's ABC outlet.
