Time to Turn the Mike (Savage) Off

Okay, Michael Savage is a strange bird. It’s hard not to laugh when this guy calls Al Gore crazy (which is true, certifiable), but some of the issues he raises are often ignored in the media. The issues he raises that the media do cover never give the man accredition (MSM = Friends of the Joe Biden Plagerism Society).

Lately, though, it’s been hard to listen to the man. If he’s not shilling for his books or his now-dropped CAIR suit, he’s hardly on the air. At times you smell his desperation through the speakers.

But today, with the announcement of Gov. Palin as McCain’s backup, I’ve arrived at the conclusion it’s time to turn the dial off.

Savage decries the choice, declaring Romney should have gotten the VP nod. While the former Mass. Gov. was the best overall choice for the top slot, his failure to achieve the President nomination reveals that the man could never have won the November election. Huckabee’s constant attacks on Romeny as a possible VP nominee reveals that indeed those peskie South Baptist religious bigots, always on the march against Mormons, would have torpedoed the election if he was in either slot.

Palin, like my next favorite choice, Jindal, is like him in that she lacks enough experience – yet – for the job. While the Demoncrates are attacking her as even less experienced than their man nObama, they ignore the quality of difference between the two candidates; Palin’s experience comes outside the Beltway, which is just what nObama says the country needs despite his own D.C. credentials as a frehsman senator and the similar legislative experience from the state level.

Palin’s experience comes from real life, living and breathing among the ordinary Alaskan natives compared to pObama’s elitist education and radical revolutionary Marxist associations.

Palin cleaned house – working against the dregs her own party as well as the opposition’s.

And finally, even more importantly, Palin’s character was revealed when visiting our fallen troops in Germany. She had no problem going without staff and personal press. Obama refused to visit, throwing a hissy fit – now his MO – since he couldn’t bring his MSM PR team.

Mike, like Gore, you have gone certifiable.

And I’m turning you off………………….

The ads begging to answer Obama’s attack on wealth, or Much Ado About Something

The brouhaha over McCain not knowing how many houses “his wife” owns should be the nail in the coffin for The One if McCain or other supporters make the correct reaction ads. Here are some suggestions:

First, a counter to the on-the-street video running on youtube that questions “average” people how many houses they own. The highest number is two. Probably not all that uncommon. The counter to this is quite simple:   Man-on-the-street Question: “How many houses would you like to own? If you could own more than one, would you? Would you like to be able to buy a house for each of your children? Is it wrong to own more than one house?      The Questions would reveal that while not everyone might want a lot of houses, most would think it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The logical answer to the original Obama attack ad on McCain homes is to highlight Obama’s supporters and pals who own multiple houses with tag lines to identify their Obama connection. Include in the ad Kerry’s homes and total worth, Kennedy’s, Pelosi, etc. Then close with Obama’s first public counter, Obama saying he “owned one home” and show a long-shot view of his multi-million dollar home, with its price tag…then close with Obama’s comment, “millions of home-owners struggling to make their mortgage payments” with a mention the $200,000 discount on the adjacent property with Rezko…then close with: “And Obama says he is connected with the average American?

That viewpoint could be supported by another on-the-street ad, asking the average American the value of their home…then close with shot of Obama’s mansion with its value. Closing tag, “Not your average American home, is it?’ A variation could include asking about square feet (homeowners really understand the value of more space).

Another ad could simply include all the Dems that ran for President or are influental, the price tags on their home or their personal wealth…and finish with, “Suddenly the Democrats have a problem with having too much money…”
Perhaps another ad could include the original reporter’s question laid over Obama “One worth $2 million” – then Bayh, then Kerry, then Kennedy.

Can’t wait to see these or other inventive ads produced!
