Edit: forgot to add the Orange to Blue page for Elizabeth Warren!

https://secure.actblue.com/...

Living in Nova Scotia as I do I get all the Boston TV stations, so I've seen my fair share of ads for both Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren. Then I saw one in which Scott Brown was whining about how Elizabeth Warren had launched personal attacks on him. Sometimes Conservative Hypocrisy knows no bounds I thought, because I was pretty sure I remembered Senator Brown disgustily attacking Elizabeth Warren for not being 1/32nd Native American during their debate. You know, the one he tried to chicken out on?

Most of the time I just let these instances of Conservative Hypocrisy slide by, I mean there ARE thousands of them after all.

But this one really bugged me. I think because I like Warren so much and dislike Brown about the same amount.

So, I created my own ad responding to Brown, using his own words against him.

Follow me beyond the doodle to see it.

Now, before I show this to you let me qualify it by telling you what you're about to see is one of the worst produced videos of all time. Somewhere between the Zapruder film being viewed while on acid and the last few episodes of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. The reason for this is twofold.

#1 I have absolutely NO training, formal or otherwise, in video editing or creation.
#2 I used Microsoft Movie Maker, which is a fine program for videos of your latest fishing trip, not so much for making a polished political ad.

But, if you can get past the horrible production value I think you'll enjoy the message I'm trying to convey.

Rec and Tip if you like.
Post savage, unrepentant comments if you don't.

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.

    Bravo to you for your interest.  And I happen to think that you are right after all that I have seen of the two.  I hope that the state of Massachusetts will vote for the committed, intelligent school-marmish woman.  (She reminds me of one of my favorite teachers.  No glamour queen, but totally committed to doing good instead of well.)

    Unfortunately, instinct-driven people, who have nothing to go on but their superficial optics can't appreciate that. Monkey see, monkey do does seem to apply to them. Lacking in personal initiative, their behavior is entirely responsive to their gonads or some external prompt. So, they are creatures of habit whose primary modes of behavior are imitation and repetition. Rather than processing conflicting information and coming up with a unique response, they rely on imitation to introduce variety into their behavioral repertoire. Since "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" the people whose behavior they imitate find them quite charming and good company. When such people are groomed for a political role, their handlers take into account that the audience is likely to influence their behavior, so they simply arrange for irritants to be removed.
    Professor Warren has obviously elicited a nasty streak in this Senator Brown. He's a whiny fellow. That is probably going to turn a lot of older women off.

    ad is okay..problem is people don't really listen and might think it's a brown ad from the beginning

    mondale had this problem..if you paid attention to his ads, they were effective..if you didn't they weren't
