Hanging With the Baluurians

I haven’t yet seen Jennifer Rawson’s tissue-of-lies ads against Paul Cunningham, but given recent poll results, I imagine that they look and sound an awful lot like desperation.

In case you are curious: these ads, along with ones for Rick Grinnell and Tyler Vogt, were put together by Stevens Reed Curcio & Potholm, the folks behind the Swift Boat ads in 2004 as well as an ad against Harold Ford Jr. with racial overtones. Keeping it classy, as always.

  1. Nice to have validated what I suspected from when I saw them. They were clearly the work of a single producer. They will appeal to people who don’t think or know anything about Tucson. Unfortunately, there are voters like that. Please mail that ballot!

  2. Because of the results of a national polling firm regarding the Tucson race we got a few extra dollars flowing to our candidates. This would not happen if a 17 point spread were true.

    Ted, trying to play the race card does not become you….

  3. I have had a strange epiphany. The jobs plan the Rs are talking about in Tucson is all the money they are spending on this barrage of very expensive times in the media world! Nothing will come after the election.

  4. Adam, I think he is referring to the phony poll that a Phoenix consultant circulated which sampled folks from the unincorporated county. In other words, they asked folks who don’t live in Tucson and can’t vote who they preferred for someone else’s city council.

    I have a poll of 100 voters in Vermont that says that Jan Brewer is doomed.

  5. Are u guys STILL talking about being “swift boated?”

    Wasn’t that like 7 years ago? Jeez guys –time to move on…….by the way Kerrey WAS a phoney baloney Viet hero and whatever glory he might be entitled to claim he has done far more damage as a US Senator to damage our great republic.

  7. Phoney Baloney? Questioning the man’s service because he’s in the wrong party. Way to keep it classy, Bruce.

    I guess I should be angry with you, but I can’t believe that you honestly believe most of what you say. It’s all theater, a put on, right? Are you the Andy Kaufmann of Tucson politics?
