Prototype Ad for the Minnesota GOP.Here's one that they can run in support of Norm Coleman now that Walter Mondale is the new Senate nominee. A long instrumental riff from Addicted to Love might be good background music. Or, better yet, Walk the Dinosaur. Add appropriate pictures
There are many good things about the 80s. Winning the Cold War-[show famous Reagan in Berlin clip] "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" The '87 Twins. However, there are some things that are best left in the 80s. Milli Vanilli. Neon clothing. And especially this-[show clip of Mondale's '84 convention speech] "Mr. Reagan will raise taxes, and so will I.. He won't tell you. I just did." Yes, some things are best left in the past.
Tacky, but effective. If you run it late next week, you'll get a truckload of free media going to town on the ad making fun of Mondale. It might fly over people's head, but using Walk the Dinosaur would run with Orrin Judd's point that picking Lautenberg and Mondale has the Democrats going to the oldies bin for their replacements when better younger people were available. [Update 10/31-Corrected the Mondale quote-I was going from memory, having it start "Both the president and I will raise taxes." A good paraphrase, but not quite the quote. Thanks to Ben for reminding me of the exact quote.]
