This is an open thread diary where you can post ads that you think would be good for the Ned Lamont campaign. My two humble contributions are after the flip

AD 1 ("At your own peril"):

Voiceover: "Joe Lieberman warns us against critizing president George Bush, a man he has stubbornly supported"

clip of Joe: "criticize the president at your own peril"

appropriate images and voice over: "3000 troops have died in Iraq

same clip of joe

"tens of thousands have been permanently wounded"

clip of joe

"sectarian violence dominates the country"

clip of joe

"we spend millions of dollars a second in Iraq"

Joe

"while resentment against the US only grows. 60% of Iraqis want us out of the country"

Joe

"meanwhile, the recommendations of the 911 comission have not been implemented. The president has proven inept at keeping uis safe from natural disasters like Katrina and the al Qaeda terrorist network grows by the hour"

"and Joe refuses to change direction"

Vote for Joe Lieberman at your own peril.

AD2 ("Faces"):

This is a simple one. Have a lot of head shots with a hopeful background music. The key is to get a lot of well known people to participate.

Jhon Kerry: I'm John Kerry, and I support Ned Lamont

A Whitney Brown: I'm A Whitney Brown, and I support Ned Lamont

Irak Veteran: I'm xxx, an Irak veteran, and I support Ned Lamont

Chris Dodd: I'm Chris Dodd, and I support Ned Lamont

Jhon Edwards: I'm Jhon Edwards, and I support Ned Lamont

Russ Feingold: I'm Russ Feingold, and I support Ned Lamont

Lorenzo Sunflower: I'm Lorenzo Sunflower, and I, a potted plant, support Ned Lamont

A bunch of people: WE ARE THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS OF CONNECTICUT, AND WE SUPPORT NED LAMONT!

Well, that's it. Make your own contributions below

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      but it seemed more for Joe. What is the pro gun all about?  Democrats want their guns.

      I am stuck with land line and vidoes take forever to play or I would have watched all of it. The video itself is excellent quality.

      Life is what you focus on. I am focused on Joe Lieberman and the republicans. It ain't pretty.

      I have a pretty clear picture in my mind of him saying it, put I'm unsure.

      We can substitute that for the image of the kiss and a quote from the source

  •  Liberman's Latest Accounting -- (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    bronte17, Mr Bula

    As a businessman, I know how important fiscal responsibility is.

    Joe Lieberman's latest reports show $32,000 per day spent on "petty cash."  Apparently, he got millions from George Bush's insider group -- the same ones that brought us "Brownie" and mismanagement, like the response to hurricane Katrina.

    I'm Ned Lamont, and I approved this message, because I think its time to get back to the values that make CT and American great -- old fashioned accountability -- not to George Bush and his cronies -- responsibility to the people.

    here and here is one article and one video with "Big dawg" Clinton telling policy makers in Washington should focus on improving policy and not on political attacks and him urging Democrats to fight...

    Some Democtats are promising tax cuts for the middle class and say the middle class are those who earn $250,000 or less a year. That is a winner!

      Mr Bula, theark
      on TV, that January, while lying in bed. It showed me that my suspicions were true and Bush had Lieberman in his pocket. I felt that the rest of us that make below $100,000 and especially those who make below $60,000 didn't stand a chance. I felt fear for the future.

      It was like since Bush got in, they all thought they could stay in power forever, after all they had Fox News covering them and they had diebold. Joe didn't even pretend to be a Democrat. He didn't think he had to.

      I hope we can prove Joe and the rest of them wrong. Our country as we knew it as a fair and just country needs to cleanse itself of Lieberman Republican lites.

      We need real Democrats. By real Democrats, I mean Democrats that will fight for the middle and working class.

      Life is what you focus on. I am focused on Joe Lieberman and the republicans. It ain't pretty.

    I. A TV AD REGARDING LIEBERMAN"S SPECIAL INTEREST TIES

    The Lamont campaign should air an ad pointing out that Lieberman has raised over FOUR MILLION DOLLARS ($4,514,398 to be precise) from special interests during the 18 years that he has been in the U.S. Senate, including hundreds of thousands from drug companies ($438,740 to be precise), $2,402,813 from securities interests, $297,635 from lobbyists, $501,017 from energy interests.

    The ad should include this language:

    “Washington, D.C. is in the grip of big monied special interests.
    Drug companies and energy companies spend money on career politicians like Joe Lieberman. Career politicians then vote for bills like the energy bill and drug bill which made big oil and big drug companies richer, while doing little to help average Americans.

    Bush and Lieberman are a part of that problem. Lieberman has raised over FOUR MILLION DOLLARS ($4,514,398 to be precise) from special interests during the 18 years that he has been in the U.S. Senate, including hundreds of thousands from drug companies ($438,740 to be precise), $2,402,813 from securities interests, $297,635 from lobbyists, $501,017 from energy interests.

    Ned Lamont wants to clean up Washington. He’s set a positive example by pledging to not accept a single dime of special interest PAC money.

    We can’t change Washington unless we send who we send there.”

    II. AN AD AIMED AT REMINDING CONNECTICUT VOTERS THAT THERE ARE 3 MAJOR CANDIDATES IN THE RACE, ONLY ONE OF WHOM IS A BUSH-BACKING, 18 YEAR CAREER POLITICIAN, WHOM THE SPECIAL INTERESTS LOVE:

    The ad would begin by noting that there are 3 mention that there are 3 major candidates in the Senate race: “Democrat Ned Lamont,” “Republican Alan Schlesinger” and “Career Politician Joe Lieberman,” and show their photos side by side.

    The ad could then mention a series of issues on which Lamont & Schlesinger have taken clear, principled, diametrically opposed positions and on which Lieberman has been an unreliable flip flopper: Social Security, Vouchers, Alito (votes “for” i.e., for cloture, than “against” – on the main vote), bankruptcy (again, votes “for” cloture, then “against” the bill), Iraq (first for “stay the course,” now says he “wants” to end the war), etc.

    Each time Lieberman's flip flops are mentioned, his image could be shown flipping around...

    The ad could also mention that both Schlesinger and Lamont are businessmen who have actually had to meet a payroll, deal with health care costs, etc., in the real world, and could mention that while Lieberman has taken over 4 million in special interest donations, Lamont has said no to special interest PAC money (I don't know Schlesinger's position on that last subject.)

    The aim of the ad would be aimed at steering some Republican votes to Schlesinger, while soldifying Lamont’s support among Democrats, and making Independents wonder whether Lieberman believes in anything.
