Dems Launch 'Demon Sheep II' Attack Ad on GOP Candidates
What does it say about the current state of California politics that what passes for debate among our foremost U.S. Senate candidates is a contest to see who can best portray their opponents in Internet videos as demonic sheep? Seriously, guys -- dueling sheep? Thomas Jefferson would not be pleased.
Following the release of what must have been one of the most bizarre attack ads in history -- Republican Carly Fiorina's video depicting Senate primary opponent Tom Campbell as a sheep with blazing red eyes -- the Dems are now taking a stab at this Bovidae-based form of campaigning. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has launched "Demon Sheep II: The Fleecing of California."
We don't know what to say about this, except that, mercifully, it's a bit shorter than the Fiorina campaign's demon-sheep bit. The spot's highlights, without a doubt, are the clever accessories sported by the furry versions of Fiorina -- adorned with a pearl necklace and baby-blue chapeau -- and Republican candidate Chuck DeVore, whose Tea Party sympathies are suggested by a sheep wearing a colonial-style tricorn hat.
