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

From the diaries. This ad is truly bizarre. And infuriating. What is up with people IN congress running AGAINST congress? What do you mean bring "some Texas common sense to Washington"!? Dude, you're IN Washington. Make Cornyn pay by giving to Rick Noriega today. - Todd

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  "Bumptious macho John has been replaced by plain, sensitive, kind-of-sad John.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.

"The Cow Whisperer"

Bullshit.

That's the only word that comes to mind.

Wow, still, the ad seems pretty avant-garde in a down-home Texas way.

Should have ended with 'FIN' on the title card.

Cornyn is losing the wingnut base

... with his 'aye' vote on the bailout yesterday:

That's a serious video right there.

Is there something wrong with me when the first thing I want to do after seeing this horrible ad is to remove the audio and add in Lionel Richie's "Hello" as the background music?  Am I incredibly clever or in serious need of professional help?  Both?

"The Cow Whisperer"

Cattlemen are out standing in their field?

Cows eat hay, which comes in bales? You put bales out in the field?

Anyway, I donated to Rick on the 30th, and when I get paid, I'll give more just for the cows.

COUNTRY FIRST.

If Noreiga's last name was Sampson or some other shit he would probably get elected.  Unfortunately that's not the case.  Texas loves Cattle.  Go LONGHORNS.
