John Cornyn's Ads Continue to Run Wednesday

by: Karl-Thomas Musselman

Wed Sep 17, 2008 at 08:22 PM CDT

For as much as the Cornyn campaign likes to attack the Noriega campaign on process stories, it seems they having a real problem getting their ads off the air. For a second straight day, this ad shown below, has been on Texas airwaves in certain markets.

Are they incapable of pulling their ads, do they not want to pull their ads, or will they blame someone else for running their ads during this recovery period? Maybe if Cornyn hadn't made plans to start running his ads the day Hurrican Ike was scheduled to slam into Texas to begin with, he wouldn't have had to worry this now.

And it's not even an interesting ad. In black and white. And while it appears a few seconds of disclaimer are cut off, the voice changes at the end- so is there enough time for Cornyn to say the legal "I approve this message" part? That of course, would be a problem of a whole other sort which has plagued two other Republican Senate campaigns already.

What a vacuous piece of work (5.00 / 1)
But what else can one expect from a Republican who has sold our financial futures to the fat cats and greed mongering devils on Wall St.  

Check out an ad about a little truth telling.

A West VA. coal miner gets it, too. (0.00 / 0)

Maybe Cornyn should have pulled his ads like he said he would during Ike.  

So sad, too bad and too late.  

easy to pull an ad (0.00 / 0)
if you want to.

you can cancel a schedule on a broadcast network in a matter of a few hours...certainly not days.

cable is a slightly different story, but it should take no more than 1 business day to get it off the air.

this looks like more of the same from cornyn: say one thing, do another, and hope no one notices.

Please refer to KT's signature.

hope no on notices (0.00 / 0)
Might be a good strategy for that ad. It's not real real interesting to watch.
