By now news has traveled far and wide that Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu faked a Senate hearing in a TV ad in order to make herself look less bumbling. Pretty cheesy, yes, but it ought to raise a larger point: What else is she faking?
Well, everything really. This is going to be one of those years where Democrats conveniently leave off their party affiliation in TV ads, and affect of posture of—”Obama? Obama who? Obamacare? Let’s roll up our sleeves and fix it!” If I were an independent campaign ad strategist, I’d rerun Landrieu’s ad to make exactly the point that she’s a fake senator, and thank her for so candidly admitting it.
I predict someone will throw a shoe at her any day now.
