This ad is awesome:

This is the kind of ad she needs.

From the e-mail I received:

Art is the owner of Ramalho's West End Gym -- the Lowell boxing gym made famous by the hit movie The Fighter. For more than 40 years, Art's been teaching kids not just how to box, but how to grow up with confidence, discipline and respect.
And a rough transcription of the ad:
We can spot the real fighters here in this gym, and Elizabeth Warren is a real fighter.
I don't know about Scott Brown, he's been siding with the big money guys.
Tax cuts for millionaires, that' not going to help people out here.
I think Scott Brown is with the big corporations.
Elizabeth is different, she's fighting for people who are up against it.
Working people, to middle class. She's got heart, she's got guts, and she's not going to back down.
Now THAT is a good ad. Hopefully people will start to see the light... and having the guy who owns the gym from The Fighter isn't going to hurt. :)

12:50 PM PT: This ad inspired me to donate - which I just did. Even though I live in CA now - I lived in Boston for high school and college. I love that state.

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.
