TX-Sen: John Cornyn's New Ad- "The Cow Whisperer"

For as much money as John Cornyn has, he sure is spending it in the most bizarre ways, and on some of the most ineffective TV ads I can imagine. After mucking up his launch by running ads immediately after Hurricane Ike and running them for two weeks statewide with seeing a negative bump in the polls, his campaign unveiled their latest ad.
John Cornyn has moved from a canyon- to a field of cows.
No, I'm not kidding. Watch it.
And the best part- here's what the message of the ad is supposed to be according to Cornyn's latest twitter.
Just released a new ad which discusses the economic stabilization legislation passed last night. See it at www.JohnCornyn.com
I don't think cows have much to do with bailing out Wall Street and they are so distracting in the ad (which is titled "Cows"), between them and the black and white film noire, it's hard pulling out any message from this ad.
As Dean Rindy commented on the new direction of the campaign.
"I can't read their minds, but it does seem like a conscious decision to abandon the gauche technicolor Big Bad John cowboy-in-drag look that they went with earlier this year," Rindy said, referring to the campaign's much-publicized video. "Bumptious macho John has been replaced by plain, sensitive, kind-of-sad John. He looks like a 55-year-old unmarried liberal arts professor, hanging out at the corner laundromat, trolling for sadder but wiser divorcees."
Maybe black and white cows and canyons aren't the best way to go to keep yourself from looking old, boring, and bland.
